Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent
Photos of the area around Hanley Indoor Market


1898 map of the centre of Hanley - the Indoor Market building and associated shops are outlined in blue.
Town Road runs up the right hand side of the map from Market Square at the bottom.
The Inn shown near Empson Street was The Sea Lion.
Slack Field (recreation ground) at the top of the map was the location of the Port Vale football club ground and the car park shown in the photo at the bottom of this page.
The whole of this area is occupied by the Potteries Shopping Centre and car park.
