1874 London International Exhibition
Each year from 1871 to 1874 an Annual International Exhibition was held in London.
These followed on from the 1851 Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations and the 1862 International Exhibition in London, and the many international exhibitions which had been held in various countries since 1851.
1874 The exhibition was planned to have three divisions:
- the fine arts
- manufactures, raw materials, machinery, and processes
- scientific inventions and new discoveries.
This series of exhibitions was brought to an end that year, reflecting a lack of vitality in the exhibits (rather than a reflection of the state of engineering at the time).
