Isaac Button Revisited

Note ! There is no sound on these videos, don't think your computer is broken!

Someone has posted more of the Isaac Button film to YouTube, I just love to watch this, Isaac's gentle demeanour, his calm, and his smile.

He lived at Soil Hill all his life, his father (Also named Isaac) purchased the pottery in 1893, and rebuilt the main buildings, Isaac junior worked there until 1965.
