Description:Looking south along the Caldon Canal from the bridge at Bedford Street. On the left is the edge of large Bedford earthenware works operated by Ridgways. The tall building in the centre of the photograph beyond the bridge is the Staffordshire Farmers' Mill. The bridge carries Shelton New Road over the canal. On the right hand side are houses along Davis Street all slightly lower than the level of the canal. The spire in the distance appearing above the houses is the chapel at Hanley Cemetery.
