Description

Using over 200 evocative images, this book documents the people and places of Burslem, the mother town of the potteries. The birthplace of Josiah Wedgwood has been home to the greatest international names in ceramics, from Davenport to Royal Doulton, just a few household names whose dinner services, tea-sets and drawing room ceramic art pieces have graced the tables of the world's rich and poor alike. The Burslem Angel and the Old Fire Station are featured, as well as many of the grand Victorian buildings and the factories, schools, churches of the area. Many significant events are recorded, including the Sneyd Pit disaster of 1942. Compiled by members of the Burslem History Club, this pictorial history offers a reminder of another age and provides a valuable insight into how people lived and worked in this industrial community.
