Expo 1851 London
The first World Expo, the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations of 1851 took place in the landmark Crystal Palace. The event was created by Prince Albert with Henry Cole.
Joseph Paxton designed the Crystal Palace. It was a novel building at the time made of cast iron and glass. Along with exhibits, the insides also housed trees and statues along the main walkways.
The building was moved to a new park after the exposition but destroyed by fire in 1936.
