Description:In the centre of the photograph are the backs of the works on Bagnall Street, the road going off to the left. On the corner stands the old American Hotel. Off to the left in the foreground is the old graveyard of St James' Church. The buildings ovens and chimneys on Bagnall Street belonged to the New Chelsea Porcelain Company and, behind, Hudson & Middleton's Delphine Pottery.

The American Hotel standing on the corner, at one time the American Beerhouse, empty and derelict since 1962 was rebuilt in 2013 after becoming unsafe. It is used now as a technology and enterprise centre.
