photographer:
Claude-Marie Ferrier

A photograph of a railway locomotive named 'Folkstone', manufactured by T R Crampton and exhibited at the Great Exhibition, taken by Claude-Marie Ferrier in 1851.

The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations, held in 1851 in the purpose-built Crystal Palace, London, was the first industrial exhibition. Over 100,000 exhibits were shown from around the world.

This photograph is an illustration from 'Reports by the Juries' (1852), a four-volume work on the contents of the exhibition, illustrated with 155 photographs by Claude-Marie Ferrier and Hugh Owen (1804-1881). Only 140 presentation sets of this work were produced, to be given to notables of those countries which participated in the exhibition as a record of the great event.
