The Crystal Palace



The Crystal Palace evokes a response from almost everyone that you meet. Its fame is part of our culture. There were, of course two Crystal Palaces. They were built for different purposes. This talk will explain some of the motives that brought this about. I have concentrated upon British Library sources for this lecture. The British Library collections do not come to mind readily when considering a lecture such as this. Nevertheless, there is a wealth of material available.
