  Comments G'Day, Came across your website whilst searching for info on pits girls. I have a photo/postcard from circa 1905-10 of a group of 4 Wigan pit girls, that My Great Uncle had sent to my grandmother. My Uncle was from North Wales who went to work in the coal mines in the Wigan area. Do you have an email address so that I can forward you a copy for your records here on this website. Perhaps someone can identify who they are.

  Comments Hello XRH, I remember you, you certainly kept the place happy and interesting, always helpful to new members and did some very good posts on various subjects. Your Photos of old Wigan were a great help to many who lived abroad. Hope to see you soon on the new site your cheerful disposition has certainly been missed. Good luck, Joseph.
