The Magic Lamp and the Gazomètre: Reading the 1825 Paris Diorama
«From 1822 to 1829, the Paris Diorama was located on the rue Samson, near what is today Place de la République, then known as the Boulevard du Crime, district named for the melodramas that were staged there. It was across from the Vaux Hall, an amusement park imported from London and down the street from the popular Panorama. An auditorium was build specifically for the Diorama looking much like a modern-day cinema but with sky lights intended to illuminate the painted panels and a rotating floor.»
