Black Eyes & Lemonade

Here's another piece of Festival of Britain ephemera from our collection.

‘Black Eyes & Lemonade’ was an exhibition organised by Barbara Jones and Tom Ingram, held at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain. In association with the Arts Council and the Society for Education in Art, the exhibition explored a variety of popular British art  – toys, souvenirs, printed ephemera and the like.

Here's a taster of the catalogue's contents, including an introduction by Barbara Jones.
