Corridor at the back of the Greek Court at the Crystal Palace exhibition hall in Sydenham. Designed by Joseph Paxton to house the Great Exhibition of 1851 in Hyde Park, the Crystal Palace was later reconstructed and enlarged in Sydenham, south London. When it re-opened in 1854, it housed a showcase of the century's technological achievements and featured halls depicting the history of art and architecture from around the world.
