London Crystal Palace Sydenham Destroyed Completely by Fire in 1936 Old Postcard

Vintage Old Postcard. Disaster Disasters. London, Souvenir of The Crystal Palace. Destroyed by Fire Nov. 30th 1936. This monumental edifice of glass and iron, one of the great sights of London, was completely destroyed by fire on Monday, November 30th 1936. Flames were visible over 27 miles away and all London's Fire Brigades were mobilised to fight the fire. It was erected at Sydenham in 1854 and opened by Queen Victoria. It consisted of a long and lofty nave intersected by three transepts of which the central was 384 feet long. 120 feet wide and 168 feet high. Its total cost was £1,500,000 and was secured for the nation in 1913. Its fine gardens occupy 200 acres. The Crystal Palace was a cast-iron and plate-glass building originally erected in Hyde Park, London, England, to house the Great Exhibition of 1851. Designed by Sir Joseph Paxton, the Great Exhibition building was 1,851 feet (564 m) long, with an interior height of 128 feet (39 m). Because of the recent invention of the cast plate glass method in 1848, which allowed for large sheets of cheap but strong glass, it was at the time the largest amount of glass ever seen in a building and astonished visitors with its clear walls and ceilings that did not require interior lights, thus a "Crystal Palace".
