My collection of interesting things related to Wigan. Sort of a mini-museum online!

All the items shown are mine, please see each item for further details... e.g. It would be great if I could return the Prisoner of War letter to Alfred Hoffmann, or his direct family. Also, the Isherwood painting could go to a serious collector for the right price! :o)
