The Crystal Palace

The Great Exhibition of 1851 was the first event of its kind, bringing together people from all over the earth in an environment of peace and intellectual stimulation. Conceived as an “Exhibition of the Works of all Nations”, the Great Exhibition was the brainchild of Prince Albert and Henry Cole of England. Queen Victoria’s husband, his mind always “bent towards the artistic”, was easily convinced by Cole to take on this event of massive proportions (Beaver, 11).

The Crystal Palace stood for eighty-five years, displaying the power of the British and keeping the legacy of the Great Exhibition alive. The Crystal Palace stood until it burned in 1936.
