Pictures of Burslem

From the Alexis Antiques Blog:


In roaming around the internet I stumbled upon some interesting pictures on a flickr site by Futurilla and I thought I'd share the photos. You can go here to see Futurilla's Photostream or simply enjoy these images.

The is the doorway to the now shuttered Wedgwood Institute; you'll find more about it in an older post.

This is Burslem from Grange, a spectacular view of this very old town so much connected with the Potteries. This is the town where Josiah I was baptized.

The Backway to Burslem, what a lovely ride!
Thank you to Futurilla for making these photos available to those of us who wish we were there!
