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.

The life-sized dinosaurs exhibited at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York were greatly admired by millions of people. But by the time Jurassic Park captivated millions of budding paleontologists, many dinosaur parks were all but forgotten, crumbling away in forests and swamps.

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!
