Now and Then


Now and Then
Top - the bottom of Makinson Arcade on what was Woodcock Street, as it is now.
Bottom - same view as it was before The Galleries was built.

Whoever thinks of the sentences on the posters? “Be a better you for you” ! And
“ there’s a real sense of community here and that’s important to me”. Who’s ‘Me’… ? Doesn’t make sense! All these posters covering windows of empty shops. Just deceiving people.

Quite right Veronica. The posters will be written by councillors who don’t even live in Wigan.

Just look how mucky Wigan looks in the old photo, If the vans are that mucky on the outside what must it be like on the inside where they keep your pork pies.
It must have been hard for pedestrians trying to get past parked vehicles and up those six inch kerbs

Them pork pies never did me any harm Alice, in fact they were better than the processed muck we have to put up with now!
They don’t make pigs like they used to tha knows.

All I can see is thriving businesses and no inane slogans in sight. For the life of me, can't see a trace of muck. Must be in the eye of the beholder!

Translation,? Meaning ,Mick only insults other photos,and several of us think 'Abram Alice' could be aka Mick. !
