Description

In 1851 an event was organised in London that changed the world: The Great Exhibition. It was a spectacular showcase of technology, manufacture and design from all over the world. In just a few months over six million people attended the exhibition in Joseph Paxton’s famous Crystal Palace in Hyde Park. This was a landmark moment that characterised Victoria’s reign, and became the model for other famous exhibitions in Chicago and Paris.

Chronicling the first exciting spectacles, through to the much-maligned Millennium Dome, the details and stories behind the great exhibitions are brought together in this fascinating read. Contents: Introduction The Crystal Palace The White City Exhibitions The British Empire Exhibition, 1924 and 1925 The Festival of Britain, 1951 The Millennium Dome: A Great Exhibition?
