Hand painted panoramic lantern slide of the Royal Carriage procession to the opening of the Great Exhibition, 1851, depicting the Royal coach being pulled by a team of six horses.

The Great Exhibition was held in Hyde Park, London, from 1 May to 15 October 1851 and was the first in a series of World’s Fairs, exhibitions of culture and industry that became popular in the 19th century (the Science Museum was founded with the profits made from the Exhibition shortly after).
