Art and Labour’s Cause is One: Walter Crane, Manchester

Will have to see this exhibition next time we’re in Manchester.

Walter Crane was born in Liverpool, there’s a plaque on Rodney St, or is it Hope Street? Have to check that out. Anyway, the pictures remind me of my childhood, apart from the socialist posters which remind me of socialism (anyone else remember that great old movement from the last century?)

The University of Manchester holds the Walter Crane Archive, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Friends of the Whitworth, The Headley Trust and the National Manuscripts Conservation Trust.

Art and Labours Cause is One: Walter Crane and Manchester 1880-1915 until September 2009, The Whitworth Gallery, Manchester.
