NOTES: The Festival Pleasure Gardens were designed as a recreation and entertainment space for the 1951 Festival of Britain, with much of the planting designed by James Gardner. The site featured a new water garden and fountains with popular attractions including a 'Tree-Walk', the Guinness Festival Clock and a pleasure railway known as the Far Tottering and Oyster Creek Branch Railway.
NOTES: The bridge, completed in 1932, was designed by engineer J. J. C.Bradfield, with consulting engineer Sir Ralph Freeman and consulting architects Sir John Burnet & Partners. Harry Seidler & Associates built the luxury apartments at Milsons Point, North Sydney, in 1973-1994.
NOTES: This image was almost certainly taken on the Gray familyÔÇÖs fairground in the Vale of Health, Hampstead Heath. During the 1930s Edwin Smith and his wife Olive Cook lived next to this site and knew the Gray family well. The painter Stanley Spencer was also a neighbour and he painted a picture of the helter-skelter in the photograph, that is now part of the Graves Art Gallery collection at Sheffield. The ride in the foreground of the photograph was Fred GrayÔÇÖs set of Gallopers. This ride still exists and is part of the Thursford Collection at Fakenham in Norfolk.
NOTES: The London Eye was designed by David Marks & Julia Barfield in 2000 for the Millennium celebrations. The Royal Festival Hall, completed in 1951 for the Festival of Britain, was designed by the London County Council Architects Department.
