Is that someone waiting for the Kitt Green Bus?
Moss's School of Dance was just in that street on the left. I shuffled my feet up there a few times.
Thats how I remember the bus station, Market Hall etc. And didn't Pendleburys move to a building on the same side of the road the pic was taken from, after the fire ?
Does anybody remember a little lock up shop that used to be somewhere on this corner between Hope Street and Mesnes Street? It was a sort of second hand junk shop, I seem to remember some people called it "The White Elephant Shop" and that would have been in the 1960s.
wigan before the council made a mess,a proper market town
Yes Pendlebury's Moved Into The Building On The Corner Which Used To Be Rushton's Now Used By The Council
Photographed later than 1971, as there are two Lancashire United buses ( a single deck Seddon RU and double deck Daimler Fleetline), and three Ribble single deckers, two Leyland Nationals from the first batch, 371-420 PTF717-766L that were initially dual door that entered service in 1972/73. (The second batch 421-460 NTC601-640M was single door). The older bus is a Leyland Leopard. There are also two Minis, car and van, and a Hillman Hunter. Crank and Burtons building and the Queens Hall tower are perfectly visible.
