Description

Lithograph after a sketch on stone by Charles Burton. The Crystal Palace was built to house the 'Great Exhibition of the Works of the Industry of all Nations', conceived by Prince Albert (1819-1861). It was designed by the landscape designer Joseph Paxton (1801-1865), and was the first large-scale prefabricated ferrovitreous (iron and glas) structure. The exhibition was held at Hyde Park, London in 1851, and later the structure was re-erected at Sydenham, South East London where it burned down in 1936. Published by Ackermann on 12 March 1851.
