In this eclectic edition of industrial cinemagazine Mining Review, Liverpudlians marvel at the futuristic spherical dwelling 'Futuro', one of the main attractions of the 1969 Liverpool Show. Meanwhile in Chalfont St. Giles, Buckinghamshire, Pauline Ann Lake's physical attributes secure her first prize in the Coalmining National Beauty Contest Semi-finals.
