Wigan Town Hall Entrance
Photo: Dave (Oy) (Nikon D800 with Nikon 16-35mm F/4 AF-S G VR)
I don't remember it looking like this when I went to the "Tech". Nice shot.
Recognised the author of this image before I saw the name! Superb shot Dave. Never been in the Town Hall - it looks fabulous.
A cracking shot, a master at work. The correct lens for the job. Great depth of field & sharpness through out. All verticals very well maintained. Great shot with a lot of thought gone into it. I love it
What a fantastic shot!--Knew without looking at the caption that it was an (Oy) picture.
This is smashing Dave....I am going to put it in my album....thank you ....cheers!!!
Fab, and interesting!
Excellent, Dave; was there a specific reason for taking it?
Have been up and down those steps many times when it was the Wigan and District Mining and Technical College.
Janice; see Album, Schools, Wigan Mining and Tecnical College.
great picture quality well done
A beautiful entrance to a great building that has had a varied history.
Evokes a lot of memories
I guess such a degree of embellishment, reflects the aspirations of a TOWN investing in its future (education), as opposed to present times, when decisions are more likely to have emanated from state officials.
A stunning picture.
What a photo, just wonderful !
Can someone put me in the picture...excuse the pun...Is the Town Hall what was the Wigan Mining & Technical College ?
What a silly billy I am !
If I read the comments before & not after looking at the photo, I would have known where it was....sorry
WOW,they don`t make em like that anymore !! Super picture Dave.
No doubt, this is one of Wigan's best surviving buildings, funny the council haven't earmarked it for demolition!
Thanks for the kind words folks :)
Ernest: My specific reason for taking it was looking at it and thinking "Ooooh that'd make a nice photo!"
Best picture for a long time, a real photo of wigan
Spent many of my higher education years here and at the new tech to, brings back memories that's for sure.👍
The steps should have been cleaned first. Preperation is a must for good photos.
