Potteries in North London

I have recently been browsing the history of a section of North London, and came across some fascinating information about some of the many Potteries that had been established to provide bricks from London clay. Wood had been banned as a building material, in 1666, since the Great Fire.

The above poster is from one of the many Potteries, and - if you can manage to read the other poster - (click on it to get a better view) it just gives a little insight into working rules at the time.

Incidentally, to any "Tottenham" supporter, this particular Pottery was built in White Hart Lane - very close to the Spurs ground.
