John Street, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent
Some pottery manufacturers provided houses for their workers, such as Wedgwoods' Etruria Village (take a 'walk' around Etruria Village) and Penkhull Square provided by Josiah Spode. However these houses were only a small proportion of those built in the first decades of the 1900's.
Much greater activity came from speculators and building clubs, particularly the latter, which were not only responsible for some of the most fully planned developments and a very large number of terraced dwellings, such as those in John Street below, but led the way in providing a superior quality and type of house.
