Taken in Christmas 1970 you can pick out Whelan's Supermarket and the Amusement Arcade which if I remember was owned by Ken Cowap the former Wigan Athletic Chairman from the 1970's
I notice that there isn't a plastic shopping bag in sight.
door way between amusement arcade and supermarket that led up to the room at top night club
Ah, but, Rubyshoes, them were the days. When everyone carried a shopping bag.....I am getting closer to knowing your real name....Wigan in the fifties and sixties... no one who has not been there will know the MAGIC of Wigan back then....only Rubyshoes and me...!!!!!
Who remembers the Don Cafe and Roy Cafe further along Hope Street, remember going to the Don Cafe on Sundays after the swimming baths.
What was in the building before Dave Whelan took it over for his first supermarket. It was near to, if not next to the Savoy Chippie!!
Was it Ormrods?
Wow!! What a memory. Cheers John.
