WIGAN TECH.3 Comments
Item #: 33172
Photo taken in one of the upstairs corridors at the Wigan Tech, somewhere near the Art School studios (rooms).
I came from Wigan (Beech Hill), Malcolm lived in Gathurst Lane, Orrell and Paul, if my memory serves me right, came from the Chorley area.
Malcolm and I both went into teaching, he went to Leicestershire (Narborough area), I went to the Fylde before settling in the West Midlands (near Wolverhampton) but I have no knowledge of where Paul ended up.
I remember going to night school for Art in one of those rooms on the left. It would have been the year after that photo. Good photo.
Great pic from a time and era long gone. Do they still do Art anymore in these media-crazed pandemic days? The old Tech had an atmosphere of its own and bravo to these cultured young men who had the nous and guts to do something they actually loved and were talented at. Love that sheepskin coat too...Right on!
Yes I was there,painted Mona Lisa..and still have it,I don't want it to go.
