Description:The rear of the Anchor Pottery seen from near Longton Police Station, just a little way east of Longton Station. At least one of the two bottle ovens was still in use. The Stoke to Derby railway line is running across the middle of the photograph.
British Anchor Pottery Co. started in Longton in 1884 in Anchor Road. Tableware was produced here until 1970.

The petrol station in the foreground has two important 1960s names: Castrol Oil and Michelin tyres.
