Susan Enns replied to 1853crystalpalace's topic in 1853, New York, United States - The Crystal Palace ExhibitionBill, I haven't heard from Ed concerning my inquiry of Nov. 24, 2011 and would still very much like to. Could you make inquiries for me? Thanks.
Susan Enns replied to 1853crystalpalace's topic in 1853, New York, United States - The Crystal Palace ExhibitionI've become very interested in your discussion. I've been intrigued by Bryson's book, 'At Home' where he touches on London's Crystal Palace of 1851 and Larson's description in 'The Devil and the White City', of the 1892 Chicago's World Columbian Exposition. I have in my possession two family letters where one relative visited the Crystal Palace at London's Great Exhibition of 1851 and an other where a visit was made to NYC Crystal Palace in 1853. He does make a few descriptions about the NYC site and I am therefore very interested to discover where I might get a copy of Ed Witkowski's book 'The Lost History of the 1853 New York Crystal Palace: America's First World's Fair'. I understand it's out of print.
