Place: London, England
We have a gent who is wanting to set up a temporary exhibition of mechanical wonders and automata, available for perusal by the public for a nominal fee of course.
1) Where would be a likely and popular place to do so in London?
2) What would have been the average fee were he to rent out this place?
3) What would he charge the public?
To make things even more complicated, I also need some good visual references for illustrations. So far the London Pavilion seems to be a strong contender but did they have areas there to rent for such a purpose?
have tried various Victoriana websites and googled " popular exhibition areas london "
