Child of Baron von Bunsen et al. in The Crystal Palace - 18 June, 1853

from A Memoir of Baron Bunsen Volume II, page 312:

Extract from Diaries - After the second song, the dinner bell summoned the thousands from their various places of work, and they were like a swarm of bees passing along all ladders and stairs and corridors ; when the eighty sounded forth ' God save the Queen !' and each and all remained standing, hat in hand, on whatever spot they had reached, till at the end they burst into another loud hurrah ! It was a heart-stirring scene.
