In this particular era, the Ford Anglia would seem to be, a popular car, on the roads.

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.
