EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, titled CRYSTAL PALACE, FF91_00334, showcases the awe-inspiring interior of Sydenham's Crystal Palace in London. The vast nave, which towered over 100 feet high and stretched approximately three-quarters of a mile long, is depicted in this breathtaking image. The photograph is believed to have been taken between 1854 and 1866 by the renowned Victorian photographer, Philip Henry Delamotte. Delamotte, known for his meticulous attention to detail, captured the essence of this architectural marvel in this hand-coloured print. The ironwork arches, which supported the glass roof, are intricately detailed, showcasing the engineering prowess of the time. The decorative scheme, designed by Owen Jones, is beautifully reproduced in this photograph, adding an extra layer of visual interest. The Crystal Palace at Sydenham was a groundbreaking structure, a testament to the Victorian era's fascination with innovation and progress. The interior, with its soaring heights and expansive space, was intended to inspire wonder and awe in its visitors. Delamotte's photograph succeeds in capturing that sense of wonder, transporting us back in time to an era of grandeur and architectural brilliance. This photograph is not only a historical record of the Crystal Palace but also a work of art in its own right. The intricate details of the ironwork, the vibrant hand-colouring, and the sense of scale and space all combine to create an image that is as captivating today as it was over a century ago.
