Earls Court Exhibition Centre by Charles Howard Crane

[London Olympics in the AJBL] One of several existing venues, the exhibition centre is the venue for Olympic Volleyball

One of 19 Olympic venues in the Library, Earls Court hosted boxing, gymnastics, weightlifting and wrestling at the 1948 Games.

The main exhibition space, which has been converted into the playing arena with the addition of temporary seating, contains a swimming pool in the centre of the space. The pool’s floor can be raised by a hydraulic powered ram to be used as a normal exhibiting space or an elevated stage.
