Photo exhibition of Quaker-built Bournville model village

Wren Sidhe points out there’s an exhibition of photographs of the Cadbury “factory in a garden” Bournville model village in Birmingham (see BBC article). It’s shown in Selly Manor Museum as part of Birminham Heritage Week.

The Cadburys epitomise a Quaker tradition of ethical entrepreneurship, and their success and treatment of people who worked for them stands as a remarkable example of philanthropic capitalism.

Bournville to this day is judged one of the nicest places to live in Britain.
