The Worboys report gave us modern British road signs as we know them today. In order to publicise their use and increase public awareness, the Ministry of Transport went on a "road show" around the country, setting up exhibitions in various town halls so people could come and have a look and familiarise themselves with them.
The centrepiece of the file is six A4 black and white photographs showing the exhibition stands inside the House of Commons on 4 July 1963, ready to be taken round the country. The contrast between the modern Warboys signs and the older architecture of the Palace of Westminster is quite interesting.
