Wigan Casino Bank
Read how casino Banking was invented in the north west more than a century ago...
(not forgetting Parts of Cheshire and the Wirral).
Say the word and it conjures up images of cotton mills, coal mines and the Co-operative Movement.
But think again.
This is 99% Fact Free Forgotten Lancashire, the home of Uncle Bill’s Meat-Free Meatballs, fridge magnets and the Competitive Movement.
The people in this book aren’t the famous names from history.
This is a book about ordinary people.
People like you and me who plough the fields, mine the coal and stamp the library books.
People who walk around in the summer with their tops off.
"One of the funniest books I have ever read"
"The antidote to local history books"
