Description: The Diorama was invented by Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre and Charles Bouton. Huge pictures, 70 x 45 feet in size, were painted on translucent material with a painting on each side and by light manipulation on and through a flat surface spectators could be convinced they were seeing a life-size three dimensional scene changing with time. The first Diorama opened in Paris in 1822 and later a Diorama opened in London in September 1823. The Regents Park Diorama displayed two scenes with the spectators being rotated between the two and spending about 15 minutes viewing each scene.
