Victorian Britain: Crystal Palace, Sydenham.

Crystal Palace, Sydenham, London.
The Crystal Palace was a cast-iron and plate-glass structure originally built in Hyde Park, London, to house the Great Exhibition of 1851.
More than 14,000 exhibitors from around the world gathered in its 990,000-square-foot (92,000 m2) exhibition space to display examples of technology developed in the Industrial Revolution.
It was relocated to Sydenham only a few years later and destroyed by fire in 1936.
