A photograph entitled 'View of the North-West Corner of Building' taken by Claude-Marie Ferrier in 1851.

The photograph shows the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, built to house the Great Exhibition. The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations was the first industrial exhibition. Over 100,000 exhibits were shown from around the world.

This photograph is an illustration from Volume II of '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.
