Let's sneak into the 1851 WORLDS FAIR

1851 Great Exhibition day ticket
We're magically dressed in the hilarious clothing of 1851,
so let's mingle unnoticed with visitors to the
Great Exhibition of London.
     
1851 Great Exhibition season ticket
It costs the public one shilling a day to attend . . .
        
1851 Crystal Palace exterior
Washrooms are patrolled for Victorian criminals: Dippers, ladybirds and mashers are prohibited.
         
1851 WORLDS FAIR
    
1851 Crystal Palace public visitors
For the average 1851 public, this is overstimulating and tiring. 
There are whiffs of camphor, vanilla, sawdust, peppermint and people.

Mass of crystalized alum 1851 London world fair
you never know when you
might need a mass of crystalized alum.
        
Turner design for 1851 Great Exhibition
This earlier Turner design for the main structure was rejected,
and soon replaced by The Crystal Palace instead.
     
Carriage department at 1851 Great Exhibition
Fall in love with the feel of the road. This is where transportation
is headed, and these are the carriages that will take us there.

was moved out of Hyde Park.
         
       Here's the new site in 1856 with an added dinosaur display.
