It is absolutely incredible the way architecture in this country is treated , The Euston Arch is a good example , maybe if The Crystal Palace was still standing in say 1962 , i wouldn't doubt some idiot would get permission to pull it down

That's absolutely true , anywhere else in the world and the Italian Terraces would have been preserved near perfect for future generations to enjoy , here , no they are vandalised by the powers to be , or used as pawns in political games . Just like Coventry , the council did more damage than the Ge...

Hi Konqi Thanks for those amazing , and quite frankly saddening photos and info . It beggars belief that this sort of thing could be allowed to happen , you almost get the impression that someone was trying to wipe all trace of the Palace from the face of the Earth . Thank You for your hard work Che...

I am mainly refering to one of the pair that led up to the area immediately in front of the Centre Transept ( i hope that's clear ...

and i take it they didn't find a lot , though i would imagine digging through tons of WW2 rubble might make it a tad difficult to tell the difference between Palace and war rubble

Many Thanks Again Chelsey

Hi once again , can any one tell me if any archaeological digs have been made on the site of The Crystal Palace . I remember some time back that there was the possibility of some happening in the near future , but heard no more than that . I am obviously not talking about the work on the aquarium , ...

Crystal Palace at the V & A

Hi guys, I hope this hasn't been asked before , but I was wondering if anyone here knows what was actually salvaged from the Crystal Palace , as apparently stuff did end up at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London . And i also believe ( after reading the 1930 ( i will loosely call it guide ) book...
