A guide and key plate published as a souvenir of the exhibition of a panorama of Rome displayed at 'The Panorama', a purpose-built gallery in Leicester Square. The first of its kind, it was opened by Robert Barker (1739-1806) in 1793 to instant acclaim. After Barker's death the business was continued by his son Henry Aston Barker (1774-1856), then from 1826 by Robert Burford (1791-1861). In 1865 the Marist Fathers purchased the building for a French Catholic church, 'Notre Dame de France', which still stands in Leicester Place.
