Jack Dash House

Jack Dash House
2 Lawn House Close
London E14

Built in 1990 in honour of the communist London dockers leader. It houses the Jack Dash Gallery which holds regular exhibitions of contemporary art from Britain and all over the world.
Jack Dash was the outstanding rank and file leader of his generation  in the London docks. After a life-time of struggle Jack retired to become an official London tourist guide and devote more time to his other hobbies of writing and painting.
Jack Dash died in 1989 at the age of 82. His autobiography Good Morning Brothers!, published in 1969, was a testimony to his work as a militant trade unionist and his lifelong membership of the Communist Party. In it he said that the only epitaph he wanted was:

Here lies Jack Dash
All he wanted was
To separate them from their cash
