Ideal Home & South London Exhibitions

Price: £40.00

It is very well known that The Ideal Home Exhibition (IHE) has been held in at Earls Court or Olympia in London since 1908 but what is less well known is that South London had it's very own version of the exhibition and was held in the Crystal Palace and grounds from 1931 to 1938.

Catalogues and brochures for the 1933, 1934, 1938, 1947 and 1953 Ideal Home Exhibitions and the 1933 and 1938 South London Exhibition (the last one held) have been methodically scanned in high resolution.
