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

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.

A beautiful entrance to a great building that has had a varied history.

Beautifully shot.

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 ?

Comment by: Helen on 6th December 2013 at 13:40

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.

Comment by: A.W. on 6th December 2013 at 14:51

No doubt, this is one of Wigan's best surviving buildings, funny the council haven't earmarked it for demolition!

Comment by: Dave (Oy) on 6th December 2013 at 20:22

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!"

Comment by: Roger on 7th December 2013 at 12:53

The steps should have been cleaned first. Preperation is a must for good photos.
