Embark on a Fantastic Victorian Voyage from London to Hong Kong

London | December 2018

All aboard the steamship ‘Happy-Go-Lucky’ as we set sail on a spectacular voyage from London to Hong Kong. A precursor to cinema, this exceptionally rare panorama, which measures over 50 metres in length, would have wowed Victorian audiences as it was turned on a scroll between a miniature proscenium arch theatre, accompanied by a humorous narrative. Stormy seas, exotic flora, bands of robbers and a tiger attack are just some of the highlights in London to Hong Kong in Two Hours! A Panorama from our upcoming sale Art of Travel and Exploration (13 December | London). Click here to watch more video.
