Crystal Palace

Mainly at the instigation of Prince Albert, & built by Sir Joseph Paxton to house the Great Exhibition of 1851 in Hyde Park, the Crystal Palace was an engineering wonder of the age. It was later dismantled and re-erected on a site in Forest Hill, Sydenham as a permanent exhibition centre. In 1936 a small fire spread rapidly along the dry wooden flooring to eventually totally destroy the entire structure. There is a proposal that it should now be rebuilt !
