Another Somewhat Daily Dose of Useless Tidbits for June 30, 2015

Have Camera Will Travel has a really cool 360º view of the Waterloo Panorama that captures the whole painting. View it HERE

DYK- The Panorama of the Battle of Waterloo is housed in its own purpose-built building next to the Lion’s Mound (Butte du Lion) at the battlefield. On the inside walls of the cylindrical building is a massive 360-degree canvas painted by Louis Dumoulin in 1912. It was commissioned for the 100th anniversary of the battle. The painting measures 361 feet (110m) around and nearly 40 feet (12 m) high. At the base of the painting are sections of life-size diorama depicting gory details of the battlefield, mud, dead horses, and all. Sound effects evoke the noisy commotion of the day.
