Speaker information

Cathie Bryan, UCL Petrie Museum

This walking tour will be lead by Cathie Bryan. Cathie will leads us around the outside of the Hoover Factory, designed by Wallis Gilbert & Partners 1931-38, which is decorated with bright coloured faience (glazed ceramic inspired by Ancient Egypt). We will also look at the Tesco supermarket, designed to match the Hoover Factory. (We will probably start with the Carreras Cigarette Factory in Camden and move from there to Perivale - full information will be sent nearer the time).
