Giant gas-holder at Etruria

I found a very cool 1949 photo of a gas-holder at Etruria, Stoke-on-Trent. This one was up near the Shelton New Rd., across from Twyfords at Cliffe Vale. I recall that a few years ago Fred Hughes tried to have one much like it, and nearby to this one, preserved as the last local example of the type. The photo is at Britain From Above. Such a pity they don’t take Paypal — they must be loosing so much income by not doing so.
