Great photo. The young lad and the horse look really smart, wonder what the occasion was.
Freckleton Street corner of Ashland Ave, Swinley.
I would never have discovered the location as its an area of Wigan I haven't frequented very often. Thanks
Well spotted, Anonymous.
I had a flat here, many years ago.
I was also thinking the corner of Ashland Avenue / Freckleton Street. The camera man would have Swinley Lane behind him.
"Dave" & "anonymous" nailed it - trust " wiganworlders" to come up with the goods.
An aunt of mine told me years ago that on May Day (1st of May) people dressed up and horses were groomed and paraded around the local area,perhaps this young man and his horse were taking part in May Day celebrations.
