About this product
- DescriptionTunstall, it would seem, has always been a town of modernity and progress, from its developing industry of the late eighteenth century to the thriving market and impressive amenities that emerged in the nineteenth century. Indeed, in a little over a century, Tunstall went from being 'the pleasantest village in the pottery', to 'a town almost wholly of modern erection'. Here, Mervyn Edwards explores Tunstall's 'robust youth' and 'plucky' spirit as it continued to strive for forward-thinking and modernity through the twentieth century. This stunning collection of old photographs, many of which have never previously been published, and modern colour photography evokes happy memories of the past and brings Tunstall's fascinating history to life once more.
