Caption: Crystal Palace exterior. Illustration of crowds outside the Crystal Palace exhibition hall, erected in 1851 in Hyde Park, London, UK, for the 'Exhibition of the Industry of All Nations'. This is a view from the south-east. Opened on 1 May 1851, the Great Exhibition was held here from May to October 1851. The building, designed by Joseph Paxton, was a revolutionary design of pre-fabricated iron and glass sections, rising to a height of 39 metres. It contained 100,000 exhibits from around the world, half from Britain and its Empire. Over six million visitors attended, with 25,000 at the opening ceremony. This illustration is from The Illustrated London News.
