How did Torontonians used to have fun, LockQuest-style, before there was even a LockQuest? They’d hop on a horse-pulled TTC streetcar and head on down to the sixteen-sided Cyclorama across from Union Station on Front Street.
What’s a cyclorama, you ask? It’s some sort of roundish building with paintings of exciting battles, with costumed actors standing in front of those paintings to help make the experience more lifelike. We gather it was sort of like a 19th century Rocky Horror Picture Show, except the pictures were’t moving, and there were probably no bustiers involved whatsoever.
