'The Crystal Palace, from the South', (c1878). Creator: Unknown

'The Crystal Palace, from the South', (c1878). The Crystal Palace was designed by Joseph Paxton for the Great Exhibition of 1851, held in Hyde Park in London. After the exhibition finished, it was dismantled and loaded onto carts, and reassembled in Sydenham, at that time a village outside London. The introduction of the sheet glass method in 1832 allowed the production of large sheets of cheap, strong glass. The Crystal Palace was the largest glass building ever created, and attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors. From Old and New London: A Narrative of Its History, Its People, And Its Places. The Southern Suburbs, Volume VI, by Edward Walford. [Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co., London, Paris & New York, c1878]

Opening of the Great Exhibition by Queen Victoria, Hyde Park, London, 1 May 1851, (1899). Artist: Unknown

Opening of the Great Exhibition by Queen Victoria, Hyde Park, London, 1 May 1851, (1899). Conceived by Prince Albert, the Great Exhibition was intended to showcase the 'Works of the Industry of all Nations'. It was housed in the purpose-built Crystal Palace, the first large-scale prefabricated ferrovitreous (iron and glass) structure, designed by the landscape designer, Joseph Paxton. The prefabricated design made the construction, and later dismantling of the building, easier and quicker. The exhibition remained open until 15 October. An engraving from James Taylor's The Victorian Empire, William Mackenzie, (London, 1899).
