(St. Paul's Cathedral before it burned down)
This is a replica of the old St Paul's Cathedral before it burned down. This replica is over 100 years old. It was made by J B Thorp in 1908 and was shown at the White City Exhibition. In 1912, it was acquired by the London Museum.
This clock shows the time in London in hours, minutes, and seconds, and records the date, month, and mean solar time. Also, there are eight 24 hour clock faces that gave the time for Sydney, Madras, New York, Canton, Calcutta, Paris, St. Petersburg, and Constantinople. The clock was part of the International Exhibition of 1862.
This is a picture of one the videos that was playing in the exhibit of a couple doing the Charleston on a moving vehicle. Throughout the video it showed life in London during that time.
I loved visiting the museum because I was able to see how London changed and grew with the times.
