Mr Punch Visits The Potteries

Not sure of the date of this but I am guessing the early 1900s. The bottle ovens seem to be still working but the enamel kiln looks gas or electric. Also MPs were popular back in those days.

Mr Punch certainly wouldn’t win any prizes in the ‘throw down’ competition.

    1. Hi Deborah, I am glad you enjoyed the playful Mr Punch. I have had this image some time and can´t remember exactly where I came across it. I bought quite a few items to do with Thomas Forester from the Stoke-on-Trent Museum archives and this may have been among them. I have noticed that there is an image on Ebay at the moment that looks like a direct .jpg photocopy of the original. Hope this helps. Best Wishes Brian Milner
