View across the river of the Dome of Discovery and the Skylon on the South Bank during the construction of the exhibition site for the Festival of Britain. The frame of the Skylon is partially built, and the site itself is under construction. Henry Grant photographed preparations for the South Bank exhibition at the Festival of Britain site from across the Thames. Construction workers are on the roof of the great aluminium Dome of Discovery, which was accompanied by the towering Skylon feature. The Dome contained eight themed sections from 'The Sea' to 'Outer Space'.
