Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre 
Daguerre's Diorama in Paris 
1822 (or later) 
Archives of Modern Conflict OR National Gallery of Canada 
In 1822 at age 35 Daguerre with a partner and investors opened the Diorama in Paris. To control the lighting effects, the glass roof is necessary.
This illustration was included in the lecture "The many faces of Daguerre" presented by Matt Isenburg at the Daguerreian Society Symposium (2009).
(16 April 2016) Beverly Wilgus noted that the reversed title at the top of the print would be shown correctly when viewed through a Zograscope, a popular parlor amusement of the time.
