See the Salamanca Street Ceramics

Echoing the history of an area once dominated by the Doulton and various other potteries, ceramic tiles dot the walls beneath the bridge on Salamanca Street in Lambeth.

Whilst Doulton's grand headquarters was in Black Prince Road, the company once had potteries and kilns dotted around North Lambeth, centred around Salamanca Street, and the tiles designed by Duncan Hooson, Ali Samiel, Janet James, Sue Edkins and others provide an echo of this golden age of London ceramics. They are complemented by mosaics of a pedlar and a Spanish flamenco dancer.
