Cotton to Gold: Extraordinary Collections of the Industrial North WestTwo Temple Place, a spectacular neo-Gothic mansion on London's Victoria Embankment, reopens this January, with an exhibition showcasing the riches gathered by the great collector-philanthropists of the booming industrial North West. Cotton to Gold features rare Roman coins, priceless medieval
manuscripts, Turner watercolours, Tiffany glass, Japanese prints, Byzantine icons, ivory sculptures, preserved beetles and a Peruvian mummy. The world-class treasures, loaned from the Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery, Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington and Towneley Hall in Burnley, are from the collections of an extraordinary group of Lancashire magnates and cotton mill owners who were among Britain's wealthiest men. "We rarely lend our collections in such volume," said Paul Flintoff, Museum Manager, Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery, "in fact they have never travelled together before - making this a truly unique exhibition."
