Crystal Palace Entrance

Hi Guys, it has just dawned on me looking through the latest posts that no one has any pictures of the main entrances , were there turn stiles , a booth for obtaining tickets ? what did they have there ? How was the North tower accessed ? Cheers Chelsey

Hi Tulse Hill Terry do you know if the other ones you just mentioned are still in existence , and if so their whereabouts . And does anyone know who actually bought the statues sold in 1957 and what became of them ? Many Thanks Chelsey

So it looks like the best part of the Aquarium was built over , such a shame some of the remaining parts of the Palace were just cleared away , as there is so little of the metal structure of the building left . But that is a great pic none the less.... Very Many Thanks Chelsey

Thank You , I shall certainly be placing my order for that as soon as it comes out ! I must admit i had always had a sneaking suspicion that the " i only told you to blow the bloody doors off " sequence was filmed at Crystal Palace because of the transmitter in the background Many Thanks Chelsey

So I have to ask . Is " The Pleasure Garden " the only feature to have been filmed at the Palace ? I believe that there was a Stanley Holloway film done there too , but again that is only what I have been told , and I don't know that its a fact . Many Thanks Again Chelsey

Cheers Konqi for that , please keep us informed if a DVD comes out , or anybody else for that matter , as I have just been informed that none other than John Le Mesurier from Dads Army is in it , not sure if that is true yet but maybe you can help me out again Many Thanks Chelsey
