We’re in Business: Art, Trade & Business of West Green Road - the Windrush Generation's Legacy 

Wednesday 2 March 2022 until Sunday 5 February

Bruce Castle Museum, Lordship Lane, N17 8NU  

Bruce Castle Museum is open from Wednesday to Sunday between 1pm and 5pm

Explore the pioneering businesses, entrepreneurs and artists of the Windrush Generation in West Green Road in Tottenham.This street has witnessed many important trailblazers and change-makers who, rooted in their communities, went on to succeed in building some of the most successful black enterprises in this country. 

From Dyke & Dryden’s beauty and hair products, becoming Britain’s first black multi-million-pound business, to Althea McNish, the internationally-renowned textile designer and artist who made West Green Road her home for over 60 years, you can find out more about the stories of these pioneers and others – all starting out and finding their feet in West Green Road. 

This exhibition shares these histories and stories from West Green Road, looking at objects, photographs and documents from the collections of Bruce Castle Museum & Archive. It also shows in public for the first time personal items and works from the amazing art studio of textile designer Althea McNish, very kindly on loan from The N15 Archive, alongside new artwork created for the exhibition from local artist and architect Tania Pascoal.
