These coasters show two well known landmarks from each of the six towns that make up Stoke on Trent. This coaster depicts Longton with its town hall and railway bridge. Two bottle kilns frame the sides. As early as 1756, a manufactory of English porcelain was established here, a ware of great lightness and beauty was produced. In 1759 the main road from Derby to Newcastle through Uttoxeter, was built which gave the town of Longton a boost when the pottery industry began to appear in the town a distinctive irregular appearance with pot banks lining the main street jumbled in and around the houses of the workers employed in the ceramic industry. Until the last decade of the 18th century it was known for coal mines and iron works. Longton which is situated in the extreme south of the district, is connected by the Stoke and Derby branch of the North Staffordshire Railway with the great trunk lines of England, so enjoys excellent facilities for transport purposes. Designed by Steve Shaw.

Height 13cm x Width 13cm.
