    Visited with Ravenwing.

    A little history..

    John Tams was born in 1837 in Longton, Stoke on Trent. He was apprenticed into the pottery trade and eventually went into partnership with William Lowe in 1865. The company was set up as Tams & Lowe and worked out of St. Gregory’s Pottery in the High Street of Longton. It was short lived as in 1873 they dissolved the partnership and when they separate ways. John bought Crown Works in Longton and specialised in manufacturing imperial measuring ware including mugs and other items for use in hotels and public houses.

    After a failed attempt of Jesse Shirley:, Ravenwing and Me decided that we would head over to John Tams in Longton.
    Here are the pics.

    Just incase we forgot where we were!
