Quotation from "Writings of Lorrin A.Thurston, Articles and Reminiscences",(1936), pp.81-2
"Jules Tavernier, a French artist of San Francisco,came to Hawaii about that time,and made a model some twenty feet in diameter,entitled 'Cyclorama of Kilauea.' It was exhibited in Honolulu and on the mainland;and it gave me (L.A.Thurston) an idea that a large sized cyclorama ( 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in its own rotunda which was a 16-sided polygon) of the type could be used advantageously to advertise Hawaii.Accordingly, in the latter part of 1891, I went to Chicago and secured a concession for a CYCLORAMA OF KILAUEA to be placed on the Midway Plaisance in the Chicago Fair of 1893.Mr.M.H.De Young,owner of the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE and California commissioner of the Chicago Fair,was of great assistance to me in gaining the concession.I returned to Honolulu;organized a corporation known as "The Cyclorama Company";got subscriptions to the capital;and arranged for Walter Burridge,a landscape artist of Chicago,to go to Hawaii and sketch Kilauea in action..."
The Thurston sponsored cyclorama by Burridge appeared in Chicago 1893, San Francisco 1894, Boston 1895 and Buffalo 1901...posthumous courtesy to Jules Tavernier.
