Scope and Content

Original caption:

"Britain Can Make It" Exhibition, 1946. (Dining-room in a small suburban villa.) Designed by David Booth, ARIBA, NRD. A young curate, who is a keen naturalist and a great reader, has a wife who likes to collect modern pottery, three children, who do their homework in the dining room - and not much money. The dining-room designed for them has the whole wall adjoining the kitchen designed for service - the oak sideboard is in a recess between glass fronted shelves painted white, on which china can be placed from the kitchen and taken out in the dining-room. The chairs are upholstered in red.
