Description - The Experimental Pneumatic Railway, was built at the Crystal Palace in 1864, and was operational for two months only. Speculation says that it was a 'Test model' for the projected Waterloo to Whitehall line which never came to fruition due to problems with the tunnel under the Thames. The Crystal Palace was the main building for the Great Exhibition of 1851 which was in Hyde Park. After the exhibition it was moved piece by piece to its new site in Sydenham, but was destroyed by fire in 1936

More Info: -  Pamlin Prints have been making copies of older postcards for around 50 years now, so many of the excellent copies which they have made over the years have become 'vintage' in their own right. They have produced reasonably priced reprints of postcards which most people could never afford - if those rare old cards ever came to the market. They also produce their own original prints of numerous subjects.
