Owen Jones
Design for an exhibition building at St Cloud
1860
Museum no. E.10-1937.

A few years after the Sydenham Crystal Palace was opened, Jones was asked to design its north London counterpart - the 'Palace of the People' on Muswell Hill. Facilities were to include a lecture hall, theatre and winter garden. Jones was also asked to design a similar exhibition building in St Cloud, just outside Paris. Unfortunately neither project was built.
