Crystal Palace

This huge temple of glass house the Great Exhibition of 1851 in Kensington Gardens in central London, and was then moved to the high ridge overlooking south London, to which area it gave its name. In LONDON, it forms part of the story in 'The Crystal Palace', 'The suffragette', and 'The Blitz'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Only one man was allowed to live in the royal palace of China, known as the Forbidden City: the emperor. All the other inhabitants were either women - wives, concubines or servants - or the famous palace eunuchs. Nearly all eunuchs were castrated when they were still only boys. But there were just a few who chose to be castrated after they became men, and even had children of their own. They did it for the money.
