Description

Coloured engraving by Matthew Dubourg after an original work by John H. Clark showing the fortress in Green Park ( London, England ) which was transformed from the Temple of Discorde into the Temple of Concorde, in honour of the Grand Jubilee celebrations on August 1st, 1814. The Prince Regent ( and future King George IV, 1762 - 1830 ) declared a Grand Jubilee in celebration of the recent victory over Napoleon and a centenary of Hanoverian rule. Sir William Congreve ( 1772 - 1828 ) devised a mechanism to enable the metamorphosis, which was revealed momentarily amid a cloud of fireworks. Whilst the fireworks display continued, English aeronaut Windham Sadler ( 1796 - 1824 ) ascended in his balloon and dropped favors and programmes to the crowd below.
