I remember the engraving stall outside the market. Used to go there for a dog tag to put current boyfriends name on one side own name on reverse. With a heart of course.

Good bit of film that. Especially the Market. I remember Pollits fruit and veg stall. My mam always got her fresh veg there, it were a bugger to carry home on't bus though.

excellent Tom.  I would love to go back to Wallgate to when they first came here from Ireland in the 1800s but only for a short time.

I particularly liked the one of the Infirmary. Seems like a lifetime away, but fresh in the memory. There certainly weren't a queue of ambulances outside in those days. Though I suppose, even relatively recently, more folk went to the chapel of rest, than to the hospital.


Thanks also to Wigan Today for their generosity in sharing the images.

Good man, Ray, also mirrors in the mirror. Thank you admin, It's a great piece.

The piece is in the tintinnabular style, wherein a melodic voice, operating over diatonic scales, and tintinnabular voice, operating within a triad on the tonic, accompany each other. Rolling Eyes
