No because it would be in danger of looking like this:

I'd like to think that our owners are a bit too classy to let something like that happen.

CPFC2010 please have a look!
They are lovely pics and I too have the Up to the Palace for the Cup. A great book. Also I think a larger format, Taschen style book would be worth doing but the exisitng book is not far off of it.

The Park must have been amazing with the structure and the stadium and other elements. Would love to see it cgi in some drama, film or reconstruction.

Re designing something that replicates it (like the Chinese plans for the real thing) I think pepole should be careful. As with the tatty W Ham castles above they can look pastiches, like cartoons. And an American example of a Crystal Palace style building (I think it maybe a small stadium) they do look like out of town shopping centres or B and Qs.

What would be good - again applies for Selhurst Pk and up at the Park - is a modern arty homage to the original Palace, perhaps some glass modernist elements. But no replicas nor those rounded column. I think too cheap.

But thats my opinion.

What a great thread!! For me there's no question about it, a club Playing in (more or less) the same place, under the same specific same (ie not a generic name like London FC then someone else makes another London FC 30 years later) Both are the football clubs of THE Crystal Palace, the 1905 one just picked up where the first one left off.

I'd love to see us incorporate the full history of the crystal palace football clubs into our current crystal palace football club! Anyone know if CPFC2010 have ever been asked about this?

Plymouth Argyle have a period of their history where the club was defunct. Yet two years ago they celebrated their 125th anniversary which includes the years that there was no football club.

Only about three years I believe but the point is, there is a break in their history.

I like this aerial one - shows not only the 'Exhibition' Ground, where Palace played most of their early games, but also the cycle track ground, where a handful of fixtures took place. At the very bottom was the cricket ground

Whenever I've talked about Palace history I've tied the 2 together. It is up to the fans to embrace this, let's not expect 2010 to do it. They are fans like us, they believe what we believe.

So, who is head of the CPFC1861 project? Let's start with more research and fixing Wikipedia !

This plan is labelled as the building at South London but seeing as it states south and north sides I reckon it's the original building in Hyde Park which ran west to east at the lowest end of the park along Kensington Road, so will have had north and south sides. Whereas at Palace it was facing east and west ish. There's no way the 'West Entrance' would've been called that when at Palace that end was facing almost south f*ck me I need to get a life and a lie down.
