This free exhibition is being held at Lambeth Town Hall to celebrate the presence of Black communities in the borough over the last 350 years.

The exhibition will feature the work of the photographer Harry Jacobs, which provides an extraordinary visual record of the Black community in Brixton between the 1950s and the 1990s.

His distinctive studio portraits of families posed in front of an unchanging backdrop were to be found in houses across South London and back in the Caribbean. Over 500 of his photos are included in the exhibition, in a reconstruction of the walls of images that used to cover all the wall spaces of his studio in Landor Road.

Before and After Windrush has been curated by Lambeth Archives as part of Lambeth Councils celebrations for national Windrush Day on June 22.
