An insight into how Britain had started to plan for post-war reconstruction, following the devastation of London during the Blitz. These early shades of optimism are a reflection of the success being experienced by Allied troops as the Second World War entered its latter stages. Success that the Ministry of Information wanted to share with those still grafting in factories on the home front.
