The Morris Minor Series II saloon car was first produced in 1952 and this photograph was taken shortly after this date. The Fountain Inn was located in Severn Street close to Worcester's Royal Porcelain Works, the employees of which would nip in for a quick pint at the end of their shift - a key reason for the name being changed to the Potter's Wheel at the end of the 1970's. Demolished in the early 21st century, the pub was known as the Salmon's Leap towards the end of its life. This type of building design, unusual for Worcester, was favoured by the Holt Brewery Company who operated the Fountain Inn before being taken over by Ansell's. The building replaced an earlier Fountain Inn that dated back to at least 1842.
