The International Exhibition building, 1872
Each year from 1871 to 1874 an Annual International Exhibition was held in London, England. 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.
The first received over a million visitors and made a profit, but the subsequent three had fewer visitors and all made a loss.
