Rhinebeck Panorama: Section 3: the City and its riverfront. The Rhinebeck Panorama is an extraordinary bird's eye view of London at the beginning of the nineteenth century. In this section elaborate shipping on the Thames and Christopher Wren's St Paul's Cathedral and City churches dominate the composition. The panorama consists of four watercolour panels mounted and framed together to make an image almost nine feet, or just over two and a half metres, in length. This remarkable panorama of London was discovered lining a barrel of pistols in Rhinebeck, New York in 1941. How it came to be there is a mystery, though it seems probable that Robert Havell Jr took the panorama to America in 1839.
