Many things have changed in Wigan, old builds demolished whilst others have been given a new lease of life. One thing that has disappeared is the sight of a ‘bobby’ on traffic duty. This painting by David Barrow renowned Wigan artist illustrates the job of a Policeman directing traffic at the top of Market Street, Wigan.
Back in the day a policeman donned in his white jacket and directed the traffic, stopping and starting the flow with simple hand gestures. Somehow a much more civilised time than we know today.
