Dinosaurs in the Park

… Sir Joseph Paxton (1803-65), creator of the Crystal Palace …
… of course the Crystal Palace burnt down in 1936 …
… but further into the park are the wondrous dinosaurs …
… created by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins (1807-1894), a renowned natural history sculptor …
… the whole area has been renovated and the sculptures given Grade 1 status …
… I remember them as a child and I hope many children and adults continue to enjoy them in years to come …
