Following the positive reception applauded to ‘Old Theatres in the Potteries’, I set about piecing together some of my uncompleted researches into a short appendix for those purchasing the book directly from myself. I had since discovered several further images following the initial publication, and had cleared up the dubious matter of copyright on several others, allowing their publication here.
This short volume includes a short piece on the Newcastle theatre, including images of the facade and Shakespeare plaque, a ticket for the Tontine Street circus, the Matcham designed interiors of the Theatre Royal, Hanley and Grand Theatre, Hanley, and a shot of the Burslem Hippodrome.
