Fascinating insight into the Crystal Palace. Various articles and sketches. Couldn't stop reading it.

 

Lovely reference to unlimited veal and ham pie..........

The worlds first death by car !

Mrs Driscoll, a resident of Croydon, was hit by a demonstration car travelling at 4mph. She died within minutes of receiving a head injury.

 

In this age where accidents happen daily (every second/minute) it's incredible (but reasonable given the rarity of cars) that they have the name of the first ever pedestrian killed. I'm not sure how it happened at 4mph though!
