Crystal Palace - Accident or Arson ?


Price: £12.99


By Robert H. Knowles 

The cause of the conflagration that destroyed the Sydenham Crystal Palace on 30th November 1936 has intrigued many people and has been the subject of many a debate since that fateful night. 

Here, aided by transcriptions of original documents and new interviews, along with fresh information and his well-researched account of events, the late Robert Knowles points us in new directions and gives us many fascinating new insights. Also included in the book are ten sections of information that were not available to Robert when he compiled the book.  

His account will, nevertheless, leave us pondering… 
Was this calamitous event an accident, or was it arson…?
