Information - 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.
