National Agricultural Hall was the original name for Olympia, the exhibition centre in West Kensington, London. Erected in 1886 by Andrew Handyside of Derby, it covered an area of four acres. The Grand Hall, 450 feet in length by 250 feet in breadth, was said to be the largest building in the kingdom covered by one span of iron and glass. These views of two aspects of the building are likely from a supplement to an architectural journal.
