Description:A coach pictured ready for the off standing outside the Globe Commercial Hotel. The building pictured was built in 1898 by Samuel Wilton and replaced a Georgian building. The hotel was an important posting inn and in its heyday, in around 1818, about 40 coaches a day passed through Newcastle. The town became a focus for road transport in North Staffordshire, coaches leaving for London, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, and other important towns, every day.

The Globe Hotel and adjacent buildings were demolished in the mid 1960's and the York Place shopping centre built in there place. Bookland was the first new shop to open on 14th December 1967, and was still trading in the same premises in 2002.
