Helen Bradley - Sunday Afternoon in Alexandra Park Ltd Ed is a colourful edition by the artist depicting another day in the life of her family. Alexandra Park is a public park in Oldham, Greater Manchester, England. It was created in response to the Lancashire Cotton Famine of 1861–1865 as an attempt to keep local textile workers employed. The park is located in the Glodwick area of Oldham. As you can see from the sheer amount of figures in the painting we have a truly bustling park, a hive of community and enjoyment. The bandstand occupies the centre of the image and your eye will wander around as you unravel the narratives of the figures on display.
