Photo-a-Day (Monday, 8th August, 2011)
Another good one Judith what a contrast between the old and the new, the lighting is perfect it makes the old place stands out well done. Don’t think your dad could have done better, bought a few things from there in the past.
Another of Wigan's listed buildings left to deteriorate......
Nice shot Judith :)
Was this a furniture shop?
wondered if it was the same pennington family I went to school with... twins Eva and Ada ?(a long time ago !!)
Yes, it was Eva and Ada penningtons shop. My great grandma's shop.
Hello Judith Who was your gt.Grandma ??Now i feel really,really old !i`m a gt.grandma too ! The school we went to was st michael`s
Can anyone tell me the full story of the child's head over the door. Drowned in the Douglas but when?
I am afraid it looks so sad and out of place in this area of wigan!
I understood that Penningtons was next door to this building
They leave buildings like this to become unsafe, and then demolish them. It's a very old and much used trick of Wigan Council. It wouldn't surprise me if it catches fire like the Casino did.
