Davis to show the 'Helicopter's Eye' view of the exhibition site - published on May 12 1951.  The rear of the print shows an image of the centre-piece of the festival by night on the south bank of the River Thames, along with an image of the Festival Pleasure Gardens at Battersea Park. Part of a larger collection of print articles and advertising material acquired recently. Colour has been well preserved - in great condition with no rips and tears.
