Victorian illustration to download showing Cremorne Gardens, London pleasure gardens, by night. An orchestra plays in a brightly-lit pavilion above a dance floor. Illuminated decorations are set above a long verandah; one reads ‘All the nations of the world are welcome to Cremorne’ – this scene was sketched in 1851, the year of the Great Exhibition.
