Description

Photograph by Frederick Hollyer (1837-1933) of a Mughal-inspired building designed by Hungarian Imre Kiralfy (1845-1919) for the 1908 Franco-British Exhibition in White City, London. The event was intended to reinforce the Entente Cordiale between France and Britain. The area became known as the 'White City', allegedly due to the white plaster used to construct the buildings of the exhibition.
