Buffalo Pottery:1910

The Illustrated Buffalo Express newspaper ran an extensive photographic article with narrative in February, 1910.

Although the pottery is unnamed, the article makes clear that it is the Buffalo Pottery company on Hayes and Seneca streets, a subsidiary of the Larkin Company.

Here are some of the photos that accompanied the article, with original captions.
