This collection consists of 12 cased images, mainly daguerreotypes, of the London Crystal Palace, 1851 and the later Crystal Palace at Sydenham. Most of the photographs depict the various halls and statuary on exhibition at the Crystal Palace. One very special stereo daguerreotype shows the opening ceremony of the Crystal Palace at Sydenham, with Queen Victoria seated on the center platform (June 10, 1854).
