9781860771989: The Crystal Palace

The Crystal Palace was built in Hyde Park to house the treasures of the world for the Great Exhibition of 1851. It became a microcosm of Victorian life, industry and leisure, reflecting every aspect of its age. Designed by Joseph Paxton as a temporary structure its success meant that when it closed it was moved to Sydenham and rebuilt.

About the Author:

Patrick Beaver was often taken as a child to the Crystal Palace and remembers it with affection. He was on the spot when it burned to the ground in 1936. During the 1939-45 war, he served in the Royal Engineers and when peace came worked as a professional musician for over twenty years. In 1964 he tired of music and turned to writing. His first venture was a script for a documentary, produced and directed by himself, about Brunel's steamship, the Great Eastern. It was a great success and other documentaries followed. As a writer he has a national reputation in the fields of industrial and social history.
