An unparalleled historic photographic record of the Wigan area and its people. My father and mentor, Frank Orrell has worked for over 40 years as a photographer for the local press and has captured some amazing moments from the region’s history. This first volume in the series contains over 570 unique photographs, on 238 pages, which record the events, people and places that have come and gone from the 1960s and 1970s.
Further volumes will document the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s and the successes of the town’s sporting teams, Wigan Warriors and Wigan athletic, as well as amateur sports, music and leisure.
