Google’s World’s Fair Logo For 160th Anniversary

Today on the Google home page is a special logo for the 160th anniversary of the World’s Fair. The World’s Fair was the idea of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband and took place in The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, United Kingdom in 1851.

This Google logo is interactive, a growing change in how Google makes their logos. The logo lets you use your mouse pointer as a magnifying glass to see the picture in more details. A full size version of the logo can be seen over here.

Here is a picture how the logo looks when you place your mouse over sections of it:

Finally, here is a video of the logo in action:
