The Dinner Hour, Wigan by Eyre Crowe, currently on display at Manchester Art Gallery - artuk.org

Where who what - Page 10 74233210

The scene shows the cotton spinning mill of Thomas Taylor, Victoria Mill, Wallgate, Wigan and is a rare visual record of Lancashire mill life. It shows the typical dress of mill girls with their clogs and shawls and aprons.

The painting may be unique in Victorian art for its straightforward, unsentimental view of working class women in an industrial setting. When the painting was first exhibited one critic wrote that “It was a pity Mr Crowe wasted his time on such unattractive materials.”

I think that may’ve been before my time, MarieM. I can’t even remember Victoria Mill. Smile

Leigh Town Hall it is, Corky Where who what - Page 10 709307421 Very Happy

@CarefootPlc (1st April):
It's not everyday we get to start work on such a grand building as Leigh Town Hall. This morning, as part of our framework with @WiganCouncil, we started a multi-million pound refurbishment of the Grade II Listed building that was opened in 1907. Link
