|Content and context|
Elizabeth Louisa Tennant (1803-1882) was the wife of Brigadier General Sir James Tennant K.C.B. (1789-1854) of the Bengal Artillery. She remained in India until 1857, and was living in Rugby in the 1860s.
The panorama is approximately 12 feet 6 inches by 21 inches in size. An accompanying note indicates that the picture was painted from sketches in Rugby during the 1860s. As the panorama includes Christ Church, completed in 1854, the sketches may have dated from after the death of Lady Tennant's husband.
Presented by Dr Hugh Martin Leake (1878-1977), grandson of Lady Tennant, 1952.
