This is the night that the famous Crystal Palace in Sydenham (South London)
burned to the ground. Made of iron & glass, it is amazing how it was
destroyed by fire. I had been erected on this site in 1854 and opened by
Queen Victoria, after it had been removed from its original home in Hyde
Park, and re-built with some extentions on the Sydenham site. It was the
main building for the Great Exhibition of 1851, opened by Prince Albert.
