"GLC Showpiece", Thamesmead, 1970

This block was described as the Greater London Council (GLC) showpiece.

An interesting quote from the Kentish Times newspaper at the time under the headline Town of Tomorrow: "Thamesmead has been designed as a township where people live separately from cars and, now that work has really got under way, it is good to catch a glimpse of the future".
