Amazing Vintage Snapshots of Ancient Dinosaur Statues in Statues Parks
It seems like dinosaur parks were all the rage a few hundred years ago. Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins’ sculptures at the London Crystal Palace Exhibition in 1851 drew crowds in the thousands.

It’s fascinating to look back at these old snapshots curated by Robert E. Jackson, a Vernacular Photography Collector. Check out some of the fantastic dinosaur sculptures from the past!
