Long Description:
The doorway is located on this flatiron building at the corner of Brook Street and Glebe Street in Stoke. The premises now used as offices, were formerly the National and Provincial Bank Chambers.

The buildings in Glebe Street and Brook Streets were laid out (along with new church and graveyard opposite) by the Rector of Stoke, John Wickes Tomlinson in 1832.
In 1836 Frederick Wright Tomlinson bought the Brook St plots from his brother, the Rector. F. W. Tomlinson and set up the Brook Street Building Club for the purpose of erecting a row of eight messuages or dwelling houses.
The houses were designed by Henry Ward, a local architect. They were completed by 27th Jan 1838 when advertised to let in the North Staffs Mercury. (visit link)
