Originally just a single farm, Hanley has grown into the largest and most central town in the greater area of Stoke-on-Trent.

Through this stunning selection of archive images, compared and contrasted with the same views today, local historian John Booth’s lively exploration of Hanley’s past reveals the enormous changes that the town has witnessed, but also the many buildings and familiar features of town life that have survived the years.

Deeply nostalgic, and filled with insightful and entertaining information about the history of the area, this book will delight residents and visitors alike.

John Booth has written for local history magazines and newsletters, and has been collecting images of Hanley for many years. His previous books include the first volume on the town, Around Hanley, and Around Hanley Revisited.
