Story: Higgs, Avis Winifred

'When the lights go on again', 1944

An abstract collage of pink ink against a white background, with representations of light shining out from the earth and from bridges and buildings, with the repeated caption ‘When the lights go on again’.

Avis Higgs designed this 1944 fabric to remind people that happier times lay ahead, with the conclusion of the Second World War.
