Lansbury neighbourhood - poster; map

Description:
This poster published by the Bureau of Current Affairs details the proposed construction of the Lansbury Estate in Poplar. It includes a map of the estate as it appeared in the Live Architecture exhibition of the Festival of Britain. The estate, commissioned by the London County Council, was named after the East End Labour politician George Lansbury. A showpiece at the festival, it embodied all the latest thinking about town planning and social housing. The map and its accompanying text explain how the Lansbury estate will be built in the form of a 'neighbourhood' incorporating schools, homes, a shopping centre and the Trinity congregational church.
