History

Teasdalemuseum.JPG

Dating to the 1920s, the Teasdale Museum is an unassumingly drab concrete building, with an unassmingly drab history. Beginning its life as a warehouse for Teasdale and Sons Ltd, a Malton-based textile firm, the building was frequently used as the location for prospective buyers to view the range of textiles and products the company manufactured. As such, the warehouse contained an extensive, albeit boring, showroom. On the closure of the company as a trading entity in the late 1960s, the last Teasdale family member, the elderly (and quite senile) Dorothy Teasdale, saw fit to sell off the last of the company's assets, namely the various Teasdale factories in the area, in order to fund the creation of the Teasdale and Sons Textile and Manufactuing Museum - essentially, turning the old showroom of the warehouse building into its sole reason for existence. Upon her death shortly after the museum's uneventful gala opening, the upstart property developer and local landlord Clement Arkwright purchased the facilty for a pittance, shortening its name and enjoying the tax breaks associated with its status as a public museum to establish what was essentially a free office building for himself. Since the outbreak, however, the museum has actually enjoyed a surge in popularity, its ugly, but sturdy, prefab concrete shell serving as a desirable, if boring, shelter for several marauding gangs of murderers.
