NORTHWESTERN PANORAMA COMPANY, Milwaukee
B.W.Hahn,secretary;William Steinmeyer,president;H.Torchiani,vice president;P.Bechtner,treasurer (1885 and 1886)//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. I have much information to share.
