I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. 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. The CHICAGO FIRE panorama ,on Michigan between Madison & Monroe, was centered on Hoyt & Co's grocery store, on the site of old Fort Dearborn.I have much to share
