Description:The camera is looking along Glendale Street, off Waterloo Road, in Burslem. At the time of the photograph, Glendale Street was called Stoneley Street. At the bottom is the site of William Kent (Porcelain) Ltd., manufacturers of earthenware figures and ornaments, especially dogs. The company dated from 1880 (Kent & Parr Ltd.) and operated the Novelty Works which also had an entrance in neighbouring Auckland Street (formerly Wellington Street). The pottery has been demolished.

The terraced houses on both sides of Glendale Street date from the 1890s. On the left is a 1960s Bristol air compressor with the hosepipe leading to a pneumatic drill somewhere off to the left.
