Past in the present

Lambert Street in Tunstall

Lambert Street in Tunstall
is another of those terraced streets in the former industrial quarters of Stoke-on-Trent which has probably not changed much in appearance for a hundred years.

Yes, the 'backs' has had a fresh layer of tarmac (over cobbles probably) and a modern street-light has been installed, but the brick-walls would be as familiar to the families who lived there in 1900 as they are to those who live there now.

  1. It certainly does feel drawn out of the past.

  2. That's the back of King William Street not Lambert Street.
