Looking back into our vault of thousands of photographs, here are some of Wigan's licensees in pubs around the borough.
Do you remember any of these friendly faces?
Landlord of the Victoria Hotel on Liverpool Road, Platt Bridge, John Lyon, left, takes a picture of regulars Arthur Shuttleworth and Horace Waterworth in January 1972.
John was a wedding photographer before becoming a licensee.
Landlord Jack and Joan Fearnley with dog Whiskey at The Dog and Partridge pub on School Lane, Standish, in December 1971.
