Reminds me of the song Little Boxes by Malvina Reynolds - https://youtu.be/VUoXtddNPAM

can't see our little box though as it's way to the left in the distance.

Can anybody see their house?

Clear photo of the fore ground houses. After that unless you know Wigan and know what the two tower blocks are? I would not recognise anything on the photo and would have know idea where this photo was taken . Maybe some one could point out some of the landmarks on the photo to give me a bearing has to what I am looking at.

Urban scrawl!
The red brick flats on the left look like the ones on Greenough St.

I can see a balloon over on the left of this photo.

The photo could have been taken anywhere, I can't recognize any landmarks.

Peter….I can see the parish church with flag, to the right of that is the red chimney of the town hall (old tech college) Library street.

I can see St Catharine’s steeple in the middle towards the top above the tree tops.

I dont know the Wigan of today but think I can see the tower of the Trencherfield Mill just at the edge of the pic...far right ?

I have an auntie who lives in Upholland, and this photo looks like it's taken from her street.
