STOKE-ON-TRENT

I visited my hometown of Stoke-on-Trent, in March, for the first time in 11 years. I had to attend a funeral, so needed to travel light and only took my Ricoh GRD III. This small camera acquitted itself admirably to produce this b&w photo essay on my part of The Potteries -- Stoke. I have managed to post it in time for Stoke City's first appearance in the FA Cup Final on May 14, as my small tribute to the lads in red and white.
