This book complements a commemorative exhibition of the Festival of Britain which the Victoria & Albert Museum staged in 1976. Eminent essayists write about the South Bank Exhibition, The Battersea Park Pleasure Gardens (the amusement park, which gets an entire chapter), the Lansbury (Architecture & Housing) Exhibition, the Science Exhibition, the Land Travelling Exhibition, the Campania Exhibition's supposedly 'flimsy effeminate style'. Scarce title.

Condition: Good clean copy.
