The Crystal Palace was built and designed by Joseph Paxton for the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park, London in 1851. It was rebuilt permanently on the site of Penge Place at the top of Sydenham Hill, south London in 1854 and burnt down in 1936.
The Victorian terraces pictured in the print (situated at the top of Crystal Palace Park) would have led visitors down from the Crystal Palace building to the grounds.
The Crystal Palace television transmitter mast - also depicted in the print - was completed in 1956 and was once the highest point in London.
Crystal Palace Football Club was founded in 1905 & currently plays at Selhurst Park stadium near South Norwood. In 1905 the team played in the grounds of the Crystal Palace in a specially built football ground that was also used for FA Cup finals up until the First World War. CPFC have reached the final of the FA Cup in 2016.
