I don't have any "then and now" photos, unfortunately. The Palace did burn in 1936 and what I have posted gives you a pretty good idea of what is left. Crystal Palace Park is located in the Sydenham area of south London. Here is a link to a BBC article about the Palace and what remains: http://www.bbc.co.uk...y_feature.shtml
There must be some photos somewhere, I don't know who did them but I still get spooked by the then and now photos
of NYWF, people walking in the snow not knowinig the fair is long gone.
