David Sekers. A5, 32pp. No industrial skyline was ever more memorable than the forest of bottle ovens which for almost two centuries dominated Stoke-on-Trent. This book shows how the Potteries became such a remarkable place and illustrates the traditional skills of the potters. It highlights their living and working conditions and occupational health risks. Well illustrated with pictures of the housing, the factories (inside and out), groups of workers and the products made, etc.
