>Panorama in Liverpool 1797

>st1\:*{behavior:url(#default#ieooui) }

I am transcribing a letter sent from Liverpool in 1797 by an Alicia Gaskell.
In her letter she states that one day she went “to the Panorama”.
Unfortunately she does not say much about what it was. I wondered if you knew what the Panorama was?
Possibly a camera obscura ?
Or an exhibition staged by Mr Bullock ?
Any ideas?
Yours hopefully,
