What have you already tried? As you may know, the main YMCA archives are in the special collections at Birmingham University library, and they might contain items specifically relating to the Hanley/Stoke premises.

Alternatively, for old photos you might be best enquiring at the Central Library in Bethesda Street - either local studies or archives or both. Or perhaps a local museum?
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson
