An industrial panorama of Stoke-on-Trent

We are desperately trying to deal with our environmental issues but their origin can be found in the industrial revolution, when we burnt fossil fuels without any understanding of or thought for the consequences. It has taken a hundred years of legislation and, more recently, social media pressure, to make our air fit to breath. This atmospheric (in both senses), Lowry-esque photograph of Stoke-on-Trent in the early 1900s, graphically demonstrates the point. Stoke was, of course, the home of Victorian pottery and porcelain manufacture, hence the many bottle kilns.
