Description:The Campbell Tile Co. works and the adjoining Minton works in Stoke. A view north along London Road with Sturgess Street on the left (by the Overall Shop). The chimney at the end of road is at W T Copeland's Spode factory. Supermarkets now occupy the sites of the Minton and Campbell works.

The Campbell Tile Co. dates from 1875. Campbell started to produce encaustic and mosaic floor tiles in 1875 when he took over an existing tile works on London Road. This business was originally styled the Minton Brick & Tile Co., though a lawsuit forced Campbell to drop Minton from the name. Henceforth the firm traded as the Campbell Brick & Tile Co. until switching to simply the Campbell Tile Co. in 1882.
