Palácio de Cristal - Crystal Palace. The metal and glass components of the Palace were manufactured in 1879 in Saint-Saveur-les-Arras, France; that kind of building was popular in Europe after the Industrial Revolution.
In 1888, four years after opening, Princess Isabel held a spectacular party here; at that historical event, she granted freedom to several slaves, and that was a prelude to her signing, a few months later, the law which abolished slavery in Brazil.
This is absolutely great shot and very interesting too. I think it has worked out well and I hope that you are pleased with it too. Nice work. VOTED. Tedy.
I invite you to vote my march contest picture VILLAGE CHURCH if you think it deserves.
