Literature
The North Staffordshire Railway (NSR) was formed in 1845 to serve the Staffordshire potteries, and area around Stoke on Trent, remaining independent until 1923, when it was amalgamated into the London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company.

Elkington and Company, formed by the brothers George and Henry, was founded in the 1830’s, after perfecting their newly patented method of electro plating in gold and silver, for which their first patent was granted in 1840. They exhibited at the European and British nineteenth century Great Exhibitions, and were given permission by Queen Victoria in 1868 to copy the collection of Royal Plate. Royal warrants were granted to them by, inter alia, Queen Victoria, Edward V11th, Queen Alexandra, and George Vth, and various European heads of states. Frederick Elkington was the eldest of George Elkington’s sons.
