NOTES: Designed as the Festival of Britain's travelling exhibition, 'The Land' visited Leeds, Birmingham and Nottingham between May and October 1951. The exhibition's themes were similar to those of the main site in London but with greater emphasis placed on industrial design.
NOTES: This tubular bridge of wrought iron rectangular box-section carrying rail traffic spanned the Menai Strait between the Island of Anglesey and the mainland Wales at Bangor. Damaged by fire in 1970, it was rebuilt as a two-tier steel truss arch bridge, carrying both road and rail traffic.
NOTES: Charles Holden and Reginald Uren designed replacement buildings (1937-1939) for the existing station, but the project was abandoned with the outbreak of the war and, although raised again in 1947, was never executed. Number 8 is a Uren design; the stripped-classicism of the tall pillars arranged in a curve at the station entrances, is more heroic than the buildings designed in the same style by Holden.
NOTES: Stewarts & Lloyds, a steel tube manufacturer, was created in 1903 by the amalgamation of two of the largest iron and steel makers in Britain, A. & J. Stewart & Menzies Ltd, Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire, Scotland and Lloyd & Lloyd Ltd, Birmingham, England. It was formally dissolved in 1997.
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 3 of a bound presentation booklet for the project which was designed for the Air Ministry Directorate of Educational Services.
