Queen Street, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent
The success of Josiah Wedgwood's experiments with cream-coloured ware soon brought an increase in demand for his products and in the autumn of 1762 he moved from the Ivy House Works to the larger Brickhouse works in Lower Street (now Queen St.) which he rented from the Adams family.
The illustration showing the Brickhouse works were drawn from memory by Aaron Wedgwood in 1860. Part of the works can be found on the 1851 ordnance survey map behind the Independent Chapel. (this is currently on the corner of the present Brickhouse Street and Queen St.)
