family rumour has it that my great grandfather built many of the cabinets at the crystal palace back around the 1900's and received free passes for his sons and grandsons. his name was Henry Challoner. is there any way of proving or disproving the rumour?
I remember as a child at junior school - visiting the Museum. In those days it seemed part of school practice to encourage small groups to go, with at least one of the parents or perhaps one of the teachers.
