Now this is what really winds me up, he closes with:  Below are some classic northern soul photos.

It should read: Below are some classic northern soul photos which I have stolen.

What was a  Northern Soul ‘party’? Can’t remember partying in the 70’s - maybe the writer is confusing the decade with the 80’s. I don’t recall any ‘madness’ at Wigan Casino - it was straight-forward business as usual. The photographers were on assignment so the clubbers (80’s word so it’s getting to me too) stood around posing - unlucky therefore as the normal proceedings were interrupted.  Back in the mid 70’s, few people had cameras or the spare cash to develop photos so any surviving Wigan pictures are to be treasured, even these despite being staged.

I like the guy in the Inspector Gadget style trench coat who is in several of the photos.  He looks suspiciously like he is investigating something.  Maybe he is from the "soul police" checking that the dancers have the correct number of buttons on their waistbands and the pockets are in the right positions for that particular week?

(If you weren't there, you won't know what this means btw)
