Description:The Granville Hotel stood in Sampson Street (known as Clarence Street until renamed in the 1950s), just a little way off York Street (A5006). In later years it was a night shelter for the homeless. The hotel was demolished when the surrounding streets were cleared in 2007. The hotel was named after Earl Granville who was the owner of Shelton Collieries, the Etruria Iron works and many properties in Hanley. The hotel dates from the 1850s.

Parked outside is one of the original late 1940s to early 1950s Ford Anglia cars. Behind is a more typical 1960s car, the Morris Mini Minor.
