Local history lesson (March 27, 1945)


March 27, 1945
Among the numerous manufactures and trades which were established and which flourished in Liverpool late in the 18th century none rose to such eminence, utility and fame as the art of pottery.

Even the great master of ceramic art, Wedgwood, had to send his beautiful manipulations to Liverpool to receive that finished excellence which his fruitful genius had failed to produce.

The Herculaneum Potteries, in the south of Liverpool, were the last to be erected, being established in 1794 and taken down in 1841.
