Description:Street scene taken at Cobden Street, Dresden, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

The church building on the right was the Methodist New Connexion Chapel. The Elim Chapel on the corner of Cobden Street and Carlisle Street now stands on this site.

Cobden Street was named after prominent MP Richard Cobden (1804-1865), founder of the Anit-Corn Law League.

This is one of many street scenes in the Blake Collection. Most of them were taken in the Normacot and Dresden areas near to Cobden Street, where Blake lived.
