Renaming of Streets
early 1950's

Looking for a street name which seems to have changed or disappeared?

Because of the fact that the six towns had grown up independently there had been duplication of many street names which led to confusion as people started to move more freely around the city. For example there were 7 'Albert Streets', 11 'Church Street's' and 12 'High Street's'.

In the early 1950's a large number of streets were renamed. In March 1955 the City of Stoke-on-Trent published a booklet entitled "Complete list of streets renamed and list of new streets laid out since January 1950"

You can see this list on the following pages:
