New Caledonia Glasshouse (formerly The Mexican Hothouse), 1830s, Charles Rohault de Fleury, Jardin des Plantes, Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris, France.  Low angle view of the interior of the glasshouse showing the newly planted Glasshouse which is divided into areas representing the four forest climates. Here we see the humid forest section divided from the arid forest by a waterfall. The New Caledonia Glasshouse, or Hothouse, was the first French glass and iron building.
