William Morris and Liberty Textile Printing, Merton, London

Sadly only information and revamped buildings from the printed textile workshops of William Morris and Arthur Liberty (founder of Liberty's Regent Street) in Merton Abbey Mills remain. I took photos of the information plaques which document the history of the print workshops. I can't believe this is all that is left considering that Liberty's is one of central London's shopping hot spots! It could of been a really great site had some of his actual workshop and printing blocks remained.
