Brief Description: Black and white photograph of three potters at work in a Collier's potters shed
Subject Date: 1920 - 1940
Publisher: S and E Collier Ltd
 
Full Description: Colliers not only produced bricks, but also a number of pottery items. Many of the finials and terra cotta panels which they produced for use on houses are finely worked and could almost be classed as decorative pottery in their own right. This photograph appears to show men at work on pottery bowls.
