I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panorama.These were the biggest paintings in the world,50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons.Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas.George M.Hambright purchased shares in National Panorama Company. I have info to share.
