Panorama consisting of wood-engraved sheets mounted side by side on linen. Together they make up two parallel views of the Great Exhibition, one above the other, with descriptive text at foot of each. The wood engravings are based on daguerreotypes by Richard Beard (cf. Sparling). The printed captions running below the engravings briefly describe the objects displayed in the Crystal Palace and give the names of the principal manufacturers featured in each section of the exhibition.
