Description

Designed by pioneering architect, engineer and gardener Joseph Paxton (1801-1865), the Crystal Palace was a prefabricated iron and glas structure, built in Hyde Park, London, to house the Great Exhibition of 1851. Here the structure is seen acros the Serpentine on which families row boats and children sail toy yachts. It was later dismantled and re-erected in Sydenham.
