Crystal Palace

 I've seen lots of info on the exhibits at the Great Exhibition of 1851, held at the Crystal Palace in London. It was a huge structure, very advanced for its time, standing 128 feet tall and being 1850 feet long. The building was made of glass panels held in a cast iron frame, it must have been stunning. Incredibly after the exhibition it was dismantled and moved to Penge Place in London where it stood from 1854 till 1936, when it was destroyed by fire. Fire?
