Go back in time with The Crystal Palace Dinosaurs

On the edge of London, there are dinosaurs. Not real ones, not even very realistically modeled ones, but they are impressively large and enjoy the highest historic protection classification given to man-made structures in London. There are around thirty of the models gathered around a couple of lakes in Crystal Palace in south-east London. Some look more like huge deer, frogs or even crocodiles because less was known about dinosaurs back in the 1850s when these were made.
