Found a case of clothes and textiles in the Penlee House museum, Penzance from a long gone business set up locally in 1920 by a Yorkshire textile manufacturer called Alec Walker. He was an amateur painter, and was encouraged by his friends, the Procters and the Harveys – painters of Newlyn, to use his art as the basis of hand block printed silk. The image here was taken through the glass case, which spoils it a bit. The background is a patchwork piece, using his fabrics. When the factory shut in 1939 (the war, no doubt) it employed over 100 people.
