Sadly, Frankenstein's moving panorama did not survive. This is one of his paintings of the Falls which gives us a glimpse of what the moving panorama might have looked like.
Godfrey Frankenstein, a 19th century painter, was fascinated with the majesty of Niagra Falls. He made numerous trips to the Falls over a nine year period, making over 200 paintings and sketches. Then, he created the moving panorama
which was approximately 12' high and 1600' in length. It turned out to be a great success on Broadway and beyond.
Fast forward to the 21st century, Richard C. Douglas, a native of Niagra Falls, with a background in film, spents several
year researching the painting and moving panorama history in general. He created the YouTube video below. Thank you Richard! Watch below and enjoy!
