Pavillions Remains?

Found something interesting that I hadn't notice before on a 2002 aerial map of CP park. Maybe it is already known about or maybe its something else entirely but have a look at this: http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/7343/remains.png can see the dried out of grass that appears to be making out two stru...

North Tower Demolition

Interesting one I saw the other day.

What is interesting is that the south Tower was demolished first but quite clearly in this photo it is still standing fully. So this photo was of some early work before they dynamited it.

In the book:

Delamotte's - Crystal Palace by Ian Leith

there is one small photo of the Crystal Palace Lower Level Station from the inside and you can just see the roof of the station and middle platform. Will try scanning it in tomorrow, unless someone is willing to do it for me.

certainly

this is an 1853 map and I have circle the area in red.


But sadly all three engine houses (higher, intermediate and lower) were pulled down around 1969-1970.

the unmarked embankment in the 1860s\70s OS maps possibly shows up in a couple of 1919 and 1938 OS Maps, however they both actually seem to form this rather strange line that loops round in strange shape so it is possibly something else, very strange anyway. 1874 http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/717...
