Colonial and Indian Exhibition

By the end of the Nineteenth Century, the British Empire had become increasingly used to sell goods and services back in Britain. It was deemed to be exotic and powerful. More and more people wanted to catch a glimpse at the exotic products and peoples from around this vast Empire. Exhibitions like this 1886 one were to sell the idea of Empire to a wider British audience but at the same time market the products of the Empire to those very same people.
