The Potteries (1938, Swindon Museum and Art Gallery) by Julian Trevelyan (1910-88) shows the area's distinctive bottle kilns, only 47 of which now survive (all listed). This is also the time of JB Priestley's English Journey (1934) in which he described the Potteries as 'curiously exhilarating'. (He was also a friend of Dorothy Whipple and makes an appearance in Random Commentary.) Margaret Drabble followed in Priestley's footsteps and wrote an excellent article about her Potteries journey.
