Photo-a-Day (Monday, 14th July, 2008)
I remember the Ship Hotel from years ago ,I didn't think It was Still going
Wonder how many people have entered the Grand Arcade looking for the Ship Hotel !!
There`s only the front of the Ship Hotel there !!
I like this view of wigan. Nicely framed . Good.
This is a fine photo,the lad is getting better.
I used to drink in the Ship in the 60s - I think it sold Almond's bitter.
Looking at this lovely photo from the angle taken,I now know why I am so out of breath when I get to the history shop,after a hike up Standishgate and then over Millgate!
All the `posts` on the pavements in Wigan Town Centre must be `a minefield` to a blind person.
A very good photo.I thought It use to be called the Ship Inn.
What is the Heineken sign for?
How did you get all the people to move out of the shot?
Ship Inn?...Always the "Ship Hotel".
sometimes referred to as "The Yachting Station" by the local imbibers.
my grandparents were publicans of the ship hotel flo and jim picton, my great uncle bill picton was publican at the white wash
The only recollection I have of miigate ..was having to go and queue up for ration books ..goodness knows where though .
