Wigan Directory, 1968

The Wigan Directory of 1968 has been added to the website.

Thanks to Ron Hunt and Peter Fleetwood for the material, it's taken me an age to type it in! What else is there to do when staying safe in a pandemic? Headphones on, music blasting and I can type without thinking about it.

Hope you like it, if you're old enough, find your street and jog your memory by seeing your neighbours' names. If you're too young, you can always look for your parents or grandparents house and jog their memories.

Here it is, Wigan Residents, 1968.
