Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 19th July, 2012)
Market Hall, Wigan
When was this?
Was in there last week, briliant.
I`m not going to rate your photo Tom !!
This must be one of the dearest markets in the North West.
Tomatoes, of poor quality, are 60p for half a pound. Lovely vine tomatoes in Bolton market are 80p
for two pounds.
It was in 1988 when this building replaced the one that never should
have been demolished.
A very revealing photo! Toilet roll or kitchen roll?...
Oil give it foive
Frank Ryding, one of the few remaining traders from the old market hall. Gibson and Young have closed recently, Redman's are still going, how many others are there?
Mick I give it 6.I Like this one, but it falls down on being a little over exposed.If you have a laptop tilt your screen a little away from you.It will darken it and make the colours richer, or better still use some software .Also the verticals are not.
I agree with you and last time we were there we bought pies and Black Pudds at Barons ... Barrons?which used to be the best.. well they are not now.
Just got some Poole's pies from the freezer at the English shop but never cared for theirs.I'm off topic Alan!!!!! so what?
Just think you daft lot it tax payers who payin for workshy unemployed to go shopliftin in Markets like this.Chap in white jacket he look like he puttin something down his pants. I told no Photos in Market.
what happened to Dolly Atherton on the fish stall ?
Mick Byrne, someone is using your name again.
why not just look at the picture and not discuss the price of tomatoes. i mean who gives a hoot about the price of a pound of tomatoes? by the way its all very cluttered and the dust pan and brush look ok at the bottom right of the picture . i must pay them a visit .
mick the guy in white jacket is not putting something down his pants he is holding onto walking stick
The price of produce sold locally is a good indicator of how a place is changing. Just as a photos show how a place changes (or not), so do the comments. This is of interest to those from Wigan but do not now live in Wigan. It is a way of keeping in touch in a real and meaningful way.
guy in a white jacket is a woman with a walking frame
Ernest Pyke you or right it isnt mick its andy capp loki who is donig it
Some commenters really do need to learn how to spell.
Gives us Wiganers a bad name.
Some commenter's do need to learn when it is appropriate to use an apostrophe.
Gives us Wiganers a bad name.
Apostrophes deliberately left out, in order to see if anyone is awake.
And, presumably, placed incorrectly by 'Grammar Police' for exactly the same reason ????????
Did you also make up the word 'commenter' for the same reason Gary ?
n. 1. One who makes or writes comments; a commentator; an annotator.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, published 1913 by C. & G. Merriam Co.
Not in the O.E.D. And the apostophe, which was the main reason for your post?????
I actually went to Rose Bridge school in the 1960s. Our English teacher was second to none. (Mr Arkwright)
He missed his vocation stationed at Rose Bridge. The chap should have been at Eton or Oxford. ;-)
