I previously put up two images of America Street in Tunstall, that is what started me off on this project, so I went back a few weeks ago and completed what I had started. America Street is quite a steep hill and is one of the oldest in Tunstall, it is on the 1832 map. Until 20 years ago there were terraced houses on both sides, but those were cleared away and sheltered housing alongside some older ‘new’ housing make up most of the street. On a corner near the top is the Tunstall Workingmen’s Reform Club, one of the few workingmens clubs left in the area which were often central to nightlife of many communities.
As there are so many images please click to enlarge.
