Panorama of Simla
Scope and Contents
The panorama is approximately 3810 x 534 mm. in size. An accompanying note indicates that it was painted from sketches in Rugby during the 1860s. As the panorama includes Christ Church, completed in 1854, the sketches may have dated from after the death of Lady Tennant's husband.
