The guidebook for the 1951 Exhibition of Architecture held at Lansbury in Poplar, South London. The book relates the background to the Festival overall and specifically the Exhibition of Architecture. It then gives information on the buildings etc that were constructed at Lansbury. It also deals with the thinking on architecture and town planning generally at the time. A very interesting guide to architectural design in 1951.

The guide itself is 52 pages plus 48 pages of adverts for companies associated with the exhibition. Size 235 x 180mm with card covers. Some wear on the spine but otherwise it is in good condition.
