I’d like to welcome new visitors to a small selection of buildings to the north of St John’s Square in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent. It’s hard to picture how much these streets have changed over the last century but The Vanished Landscape by the historian Paul Johnson gives a great insight into life growing up in the Potteries with ‘the strange beauty of its volcanic landscape of fiery furnaces belching out heat and smoke.

A few of the old buildings remain, in between later additions and here is the latest in the Burslem street series, archiving each building in turn.
