Description:View of Longton looking south-east from the tower of St. James’ Church. In his caption for the North Staffordshire Field Club, Blake emphasised the unhealthy conditions of these streets: “The Ministry of Health had come to the conclusion that the greater part of St James’ Parish was an undesirable district from a residential point of view. It was the largest condemned area in the Potteries.”

Photographed by William Blake of Longton.
