Date:January 1964

Description:The main entrance to Grenville Pottery on George Street (later Vaughan Street). The tablet over the door reads "George Street Pottery erected 1856". The pottery was later taken over by William Hodcroft.

Suzi Cooper rented rooms in the George Street Pottery in 1929 and started, with six other paintresses, to decorate pots. The enterprise only lasted three weeks as the George Street owners were declared bankrupt and Suzi Cooper relocated to the Chelsea Works in Burslem. The site has been demolished along with the surrounding streets.
