That’s where Joe Gormley started his union activities.

Lord Gormley. He was certainly one that earned his ermine trimmed robe.

I have tried to send a copy of this picture the right way up by turning
it clockwise through 90 degrees, but it hasnt been produced on here.
Perhaps I am not doing it correctly, some Wigan Album viewers will
have better digital laptop skills than I have.

I'm very surprised that Mick hasn't mentioned that Joe Gormley lived in Shangri - La Shevington !!
