It must be early because Mr Chip is not in his free parking slot.

The single storey building is the oldest in Wigan ,the original Bluecoat School,the first school in the town .built in 1773. The inner houses a Tudor house frame,saved when buildings were demolished in Standishgate.
It is also the new home for the stained glass window from the Wigan Infirmary Chapel.
The building is now used as a coffee and meeting room.

It can't be that early Mick look at the sun position, and there's a traffic warden. Different angle for a change Tom.

Mick, the clock is showing 5 mins past four and must be in the afternoon. You can`t rely on the accuracy of it.
Tom, was it taken on a Sunday? You are correct with Bishopgate, but is the car in Crawford Street!

Harry C, I hadn`t realised it was a traffic warden, so it can`t be Sunday!

I am originally from Wigan and love getting the daily pictures. However there are some that I would like to make a 8 1/2 x 11 copy of the occasional picture. Can you tell me how to do that?

Ask again on the next daily pic Eric, ask early in the piece so that your question gets seen.
