Well I'm glad I not a horse living in that field
Whereabouts is this, please, Ron? It's not a name I recognise.
Irene is was near Prescot Street. The rough ground is the Loco. sheds. Is is near to what is now called Cricket street, about half way between the two narrow railway bridges, if you are coming from the Seven Stars area to Frog lane
I wonder if that lamp found its way into anybody’s garden. That was the trend at one time. I bet they would be quite a price now.
the firm i worked for as a apprentice welder in the 60s bought hundreds of these lamps from wigan council and i was given the job of cleaning all the green paint off with no mention that the paint was full of lead and no pp clothing or masks supplied makes me wander how i survived but they did look good when i had finished as they where made out of copper with brass framing and then they where shipped off to america and sold as antiques
My brother in law lived in this area as a young lad, when he left school he started work on the railway, near where he lived, then after he was married, they bought a house in Prescott Street.Does anyone know of a railway down there?
