Perhaps the most extraordinary building of the nineteeth century was the Crystal Palace, which was built in Hyde Park for the Great Exhibition of 1851. The Crystal Palace was different from all other buildings in the world, for it was made of iron and glass. It was one of the biggest buildings of all time and a lot of people from many countries came to see it. A great many goods were sent to the exhibition from various parts of the world. There was also a great deal of machinery on display. The most wonderful piece of machinery on show was Nasmyth's steam hammer. Though in those days, traveling was not as easy as it is today, steam boats carried thousands of visitors across the Channel from Europe. On arriving in England, they were taken to the Crystal Palace by train. There were six million visitors in all, and the profits from the exhibition were used to build museums and colleges. Later, the Crystal Palace was moved to South London. It remained one of the most famous buildings in the world until it was burnt down in 1936.

也许是最不寻常的建筑中19世纪是水晶宫,这是建在海德公园的大展览1851。这座水晶宫不同于世界上所有的其他建筑,因为它是用钢和玻璃。这是一个最大的建筑物的所有时间,许多人从许多国家来看到它。大量的货物被送往展览从世界各地。也有很多机器显示。最妙的一台机器是内史密斯的蒸汽锤。尽管在当时,旅行不像现在这么容易,但汽船成千上万的游客从欧洲穿过海峡。一到英国,他们乘火车去水晶宫。参观者总数达六百万人,展览会的收益用来建造博物馆和大学。后来,水晶宫被移到了伦敦南部。它一直是世界上最著名的建筑物被焚毁之前在1936。
