NOTES: During World War II Erno Goldfinger presented his vision of the reconstruction of a post war Britain in a series of exhibitions mounted for the Army Bureau of Current Affairs (A.B.C.A.). In the 1944 ABCA exhibition entitled 'Planning Your Neighbourhood: for home, for work, for play' Goldfinger proposed a blueprint for the rebuilding of the heavily bombed London district of Shoreditch. The image shown here is page 5 of a bound presentation booklet for the project which was designed for the Air Ministry Directorate of Educational Services.
