Receiving-House of the Royal Humane Society, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Receiving-House of the Royal Humane Society, 1844. Boathouse and boatman of the Royal Humane Society, for the recovery of persons apparently drowned or dead, on the north bank of the Serpentine at Hyde Park in London. ....the crowded state of the river Thames, the wonderful increase of traffic by steam, and the numerous accidents - too many of which have been fatal - we shall find ample room for the employment of more men and boats by the Humane Sotiety...Indeed, it is stated that not less than 200,000 persons on an average annually bathe in the river and the neighbourhood of the receiving-house; and on one occasion, during a frost, twenty-five individuals were submerged by the breaking of the ice; but, by the exertions of men (who are required to be good swimmers) employed by the Society at such seasons, and the proximity of the receiving-house, no life was lost'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

The Crystal Palace, Hyde Park, 1851: Opened by Queen Victoria, May 1, 1901. Creator: Unknown

The Crystal Palace, Hyde Park, 1851: Opened by Queen Victoria, May 1, (1901). Queen Victoria (1819-1901) opening the Great Exhibition in the purpose-built Crystal Palace in London's Hyde Park. Conceived by her husband Prince Albert, the exhibition was intended to showcase the Works of the Industry of all Nations'. The Crystal Palace was the first large-scale prefabricated ferrovitreous (iron and glass) structure, and was designed by the landscape designer, Joseph Paxton. The prefabricated design made the construction, and later dismantling of the building, easier and quicker. There were over six million admissions counted at the toll-gates - the exhibition remained open until 15 October. From "The Illustrated London News Record of the Glorious Reign of Queen Victoria 1837-1901: The Life and Accession of King Edward VII. and the Life of Queen Alexandra". [London, 1901]
