A copy of Michaelangelo's monument to Lorenzo de' Medici dominated the Italian Court, which was designed by M D Wyatt. The back has the initials "M.F.H." and the year "'77." This stereograph is part of a number of cards dated this year, from England, Germany, Italy and France.
Notes:
The Great Exhibition, also known as the Crystal Palace Exhibition, was an international exhibition held in Hyde Park, London, from 1 May to 15 October 1851 and the first in a series of World's Fair exhibitions of culture and industry that were to be a popular 19th century feature.

The structure was taken down and rebuilt (1852--54) at Sydenham Hill (now in the borough of Bromley), at which site it survived until 1936.
