After a long Saturday night, what a sobering post! View 1. This is looking towards the Parade/West facade of the building, with the Stationary Court, absent to the left, and the large "Court of English and German Sculpture" just visible on the right. View 2. This is the "Italian Vestiblule", probabl...

Please do not misunderstand me, though it is your choice whether you purchase it or not.

I have found it helpful enough, in conjunction with my own collection, though even then a frustrating read.

It is a worthwhile aim to catalogue all the many different postcards published on the Crystal Palace. Fred Paskett and Bill Tonkin of The Exhibition Study Group must have put many hours into the endeavour. But. While they have grouped the cards by publisher, the entries take note mainly of the backs...

Worthy work, but incredibly frustrating to use.

Try here for subsequent plans for redevelopment. http://www.crystal.dircon.co.uk/b28_developments.htm#1949 I did see drawings of the planned exhibition centre to be built at the same time as the sports centre, but on the old Palace site.

The latest and largest of the "archaeological" trenches does indeed resemble an open cast mine. It is situated roughly on the site of the northern third of the Italian Court, and the Elizabethan Vestibule. The Crystal Palace building itself was of course glass and cast iron, but the interior of the ...
