From George Baxter's 'Gems of the Great Exhibition' book. This illustration shows statues, a fountain and visitors in the main exhibition space of the Great Exhibition. To the left a sign announcing the display of representing India. The 'Great Exhibition of the Works of the Industry of all Nations' was conceived by Prince Albert (1819-1861). The Crystal Palace, designed by Joseph Paxton (1801-1865), was purpose-built for the occasion. It was the first large-scale prefabricated ferrovitreous (iron and glas) structure. The exhibition was held in Hyde Park in 1851.
