Mac once found an interesting pic from inside the Market Hall. (He put it on WW)

I'm sure it had a look of an old fairground organ.

I've asked this question before. Just to the right of Makinsons Arcade entrance my memory is telling me that there was a basket weaving place. Does anyone remember it?

The passageway after the chippy took you down to the Casino.

I remember (the rumour) that the owner of the Chippy won tSpot the Ball, yet the Monday after, there he was, frying chips.

A girl from Whelley was murdered in Wigan one Saturday night in the late 1980's and she worked at that chippy.
