Description

Plate taken from the 'Illustrated London News' from a daguerreotype by Claudet. The 'Great Exhibition of the Works of the Industry of all Nations', was an idea conceived by Queen Victoria's husband HRH Prince Albert (1819-1861). The exhibition was held in 1851 in the Crystal Palace, the first large-scale prefabricated ferrovitreous (iron and glas) structure, designed by Joseph Paxton (1801-1865). A large range of vehicles is exhibited, from large covered carriages, to the smaller 'dog-carts', often intended for women or children.
