In this particular era, the Ford Anglia would seem to be, a popular car, on the roads.
the Ford Anglia 105E, came out in '59..
Can't recall seeing such a clear image of the Independent Methodist Church on site before - wasn't this where a bomb fell during the second world war, hence the comparatively modern building? Thanks for posting these photos of Wigan are fabulous bringing back some those images you can't quite fully recall.
You are right, George. The church in this shot is the one rebuilt to replace the one which was destroyed by a stray bomb in WWII.
I was sheltering under the stairs at my garandma's in Caunce Street the night the bomb dropped.I see Reg Sutton's shop,my dad bought his flat caps there.Reg's father MEthuselah Sutton was the clogger at the top of the nearby entry
The man who collected money for Reg Sutton has just passed away recently his name was Derek Gaskell. i served my apprenticeship just round the corner at D H &N Tyldesley's.
