Crystal Palace FF91_00333

CRYSTAL PALACE, Sydenham, London. These giant figures depicting the Egyptian pharaoh Rameses II, copied from the temple at Abu Simbel, dominated the Tropical transept at the north end of the Crystal Palace. This view may be by Delamotte who took two earlier series of photographs of the Crystal Palace at Sydenham. It is hand coloured, and reproduces the decorative scheme for the Palace devised by Owen Jones. Probably photographed 1854-66 by Philip Henry Delamotte
