London to Hong Kong in Two Hours

Moving panorama made of watercolor on paper that is mounted on fabric. A volume survives providing two versions of the lecture to be presented by the panorama's cicerone, notes on sources for the images, and a diagram to demonstrate how the proscenium was to be assembled. London to Hong Kong in Two Hours' website (lambpanorama.wordpress.com) includes a 15 minute video of entire panorama in movement.

The panorama was recently acquired by the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, Los Angeles. The museum anticipates opening in 2023. The panorama was previously housed in the Museum of London in London, UK.
