Sir Smith Child

This is the second of my venture into local history, with this MP. Sir Smith Child lived between 1808 and 1896, so he managed to get away with the report on MPs expenditures (that has shamed and horrified modern British MPs!) for probably squandering his allowances on fine wine and a 32 bed roomed mansion for his little imaginary friend Egbert!

But alas he didn't manage to get away from !

Josiah Wedgewood

This guy would be turning in his grave if the most infuetial person in the Stoke On Trent Pottery Industry, (yep there used to be one not so long ago, all gone due to cheaper imports and Foreign take overs!). This guy invented the Wedgewood Blue pottery, the stuff with the white faces and stuff on the side (every one has a bit of the stuff around these parts, a sort of badge of honour, you cant be a true potter if you aint got a piece!). From the vurtual hundreds of thousands who use to work in the Pottery industry, it is now down to the few thousand or so! Progress, yes I love it, from families working together in the same Pot bank, to the same family signing on the dole!...... and this was before this resesion hit us !!!!...................Rant over, on to the picture the father of the Pottries (Stoke On Trent, for the ones who were wondering!).....

Josiah Wedgewood......

If anyone has any comments about how great my work is or more likely how it can be improved let me know....... Ill just drink loads more coffee and sulk in the corner for a bit then see what I can do to improve it,........................................ if it needs it.!

Yvette Fielding

This is a quicky of the presenter of Livings Most Haunted, Yvette Fielding. She is more likely to frighten any spooks away than get to see any, (funny how when its quiet, or someone else 'see's' a ghost, she happens to be touched by the spooks or see's something!), Thus the strings holding the ghost up ! The green tint is for the Night vision cameras!
