Description

Plate taken from the Illustrated London News (Vol 51/1 p 526). Inside Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, visitors admire the 'Great Exhibition of the Works of the Industry of all Nations', an idea conceived by Prince Albert (1819-1861). The curvilinear roof was designed by Joseph Paxton (1801-1865) to provide a 'proper diffusion of air' to the large elms in Hyde Park, to allow them to survive beneath the glas.
