Description:A float from the 'Cripples Guild' decorated for a carnival, pictured in Nelson Place.
The Potteries Cripples' Guild was started in 1900, and in 1907 became the Duchess of Sutherlands Cripples' Guild.
Metalwork in the Arts and Crafts style were produced by the Guild from around 1902.

The white building, partially hidden by the tree, was a late Georgian building that became the Borough's Treasurer's Offices until about 1965. The frontage of this building contained a niche with a portrait bust of Lord Nelson in it, and this gave the name of Nelson Place to this area.

The top of the swimming baths can be seen on the left hand side of this photograph.
