Place in Print stocks a variety of Crystal Palace themed prints, posters, books, maps, homewares, clothing and gifts. Crystal Palace is an area in South London, named after the cast-iron and glass structure that was reconstructed in the area following the Great Exhibition of 1851. The area sits at the boundaries of five London boroughs, and its two television transmitter masts are easily recognisable from many parts of South London.
Crystal Palace Subway
The Crystal Palace Subway is a hidden Victorian gem of a space, found beneath a busy road in Crystal Palace. It was once part of the route between the now demolished Crystal Palace High Level Station and the Palace itself. The subway is one of the few relics of that time that remain. Unfortunately only occasionally accessible to the public, the Subway has to be one of the most interesting spaces in South London.
This limited edition illustration by South London Prints features an internal view of the Crystal Palace Subway. The scene is depicted using a limited colour palette, creating a strikingly simple image that characterises the structure's architecture.
