Amazing thread!

Weird that both the Sydney Garden Palace, the London Crystal Palace and the NYC Crystal Palace were destroyed by fire.

yes, that is bizarre. Althoguh I know that the London Crystal palace burnt down because they used pitch to hold the glass in place. Perhaps this was the reason with all three?

These pictures are making me realise just how ******* ugly the monorail is. Please, please can we be rd of it?

All these buildings caught fire because of the sun's rays being concentrated through the (curved?) glass onto the wooden floors like with a magnifying glass, so I read. Mind you the pitch holding the glass in the iron frames and the contents of the buildings, materials, carpets, oil lamps, varnished furniture, etc., didn't help.

Gawd, that brought back some memories: a wedding reception (mine ) in the wonderful art deco chapel at Kinsela's. Tony Bilson was the chef . For some reason I fancy there was a theatre restaurant there then. Great pictures everyone. When you're not there, you can forget how rich Sydney's architectural history is...

Sydney's Garden Palace caught fire about 6am on sept29,1882.
very suspiscious circumstances. The building held all census and criminal records. bugger.

6 a.m. eh ? So much for the theory about the suns rays magnifying an inflammable hot spot through the glass domes onto the wooden floor. Which is just as well, because we like glass domes and wooden floors, don't we.

This was the famous photographer Max Dupain's view of Circular Quay and The Rocks from the Harbor Bridge pylon in 1938. Looks like it's taken about 6 a.m. I'd say - National Library of Australia.

So, the plot thickens! I've read a number of times of the sun's rays through glass cause, but if Sydney's Garden Palace burst into flame at 6am then the sun had an accomplice, and probably one of criminal character and lacking community pride.
This means Miss Plum did not knock over the oil lamp in the thoes of sexual ecstasy either.
It also casts doubt on the theory that Mrs O'Leary's cow kicked over a kerosene lamp in the barn and thus started the Great Chicago Fire of 1872 (or thereabouts).
Maybe there were just a lot of pyromaniacs about in the mid-C19th...
