Fitzroy Cyclorama [Lost Melbourne]
1889 to 1906, Cyclorama in Fitzroy on Victoria Parade, displayed a 360-degree oil painting, measuring 122 x 15 m. The picture, lit from above, was viewed from a central platform. Real objects, such as trees or bushes were merged into the painted picture to heighten the illusion. Three pictures (Battle of Waterloo; Battle of Gettysburg and Jerusalem) were shown between 1889 and 1906. The Fitzroy building was later used as a circus, boxing ring and cinema, before demolition in 1928.
