Description:This is the main entrance to Methodist Central Hall on the Strand (previously Stafford Street) in Longton. Methodism dates back to the 1780s in Longton, by 1842 a large chapel had been built in Stafford Street. It became Longton Central Mission in 1933, a brick building with classical ornamentation, capable of seating over 1000 people. Today it is known as Longton Central Hall. By the time of the photograph, the ground floor was in use by shops, as they are today. The Tweenage Shop catered for 8 to 12 years olds. On the other side, Norman Wain was an optician.
