St. John's Square (Burslem)
Corner Queen's Street (Number 7 on Map)

St. John's square end of Queens Street.
The shop on the corner which is Bourne Sports, was previously Hammersley's drapery.
On the right can be seen the beginning of the expansive indoor market, built in 1878 with an impressive frontage.
Queen Street was named after Josiah Wedgwood's famous 'Queen Ware'
directly down Queen Street with Hammersley's drapers on the left and the
Star Hotel on the right.
The Star Hotel was on the corner of Queen Street and Church Street (now William Clowes St.) which ran directly down to St. John's Church.
The 1898 O/S map of Burslem shows a Public House at this location.
