A poster and map headed 'Lansbury Neighbourhood Map Review June 16, 1951. Published by the Bureau of Current Affairs as part of a fortnightly subscription. The poster includes a map of the Lansbury estate as it appeared in the Live Architecture exhibition of the Festival of Britain. There are also five captioned photographs headed 'schools', 'homes', 'shopping centre' and 'Trinity congregational church'. The accompanying text explains how the Lansbury estate will be built in the form of a 'neighbourhood'.
The estate was named after the East End Labour politician George Lansbury and embodied all the latest thinking about town planning and social housing.
