Map of Crystal Palace Park 1911
When the Knight Frank & Rutley Sales Catalogue was sold originally it came with a large (40"x50") colour map of Crystal Palace Park in a brown envelope.
The story behind the catalogue and map.
When the Crystal Palace Company was declared bankrupt in 1911 the famous auctioneers Knight Frank and Rutley were asked to sell the building and grounds to the highest bidder. They produced a sumptuous sales catalogue worthy of the building well known as the eighth Wonder of the World. Original copies of the map are now rare and valuable.
The map contains a wealth of the most intimate detail about the Crystal Palace building and grounds found anywhere.
