This fascinating collection of photographs illustrates life as it was in and around the rapidly developing pottery town of Hanley. Originally just a single farm, Hanley grew into the largest and most central town in the greater area of Stoke-on-Trent, blossoming in the early twentieth century with the development of heavy industry. This pictorial history reflects the town as it was at that time, at the height of its success. John S. Booth's nostalgic book provides an insight into the history and characters of Hanley, home of the famous Wedgwood pottery works and birthplace of legendary footballer Sir Stanley Matthews. Accompanied by informative captions, this book will delight all those who have lived and worked in this busy area and will be a useful reference for anyone exploring the history of The Potteries.
