London: Franco-British Exhibtion: Palace of Music

Country: England, United Kingdom
City: London W12
Location: Shepherd's Bush, White City

Built 1908 for the Franco-British Exhibition (27 April - 31 October 1908) that took place at the same time as the 1908 Olympic Games in nearby "White City Stadium". The white stucco exhibition buildings (hence the name "White City") were subsequently used by other exhibitions. Later, the area was used partly by the BBC, partly as a housing estate. 1995 the "White City" was bought by a building society that plans to convert the site into a huge shopping centre.
