The History of Panoramic Photography
The desire to show overviews of landscapes, cities, and historical scenes gave rise to panoramic photographs early in the history of photography. The first panoramas, in the 1840s through late 1800s, were created by placing two or more daguerreotype plates side by side. The lines between plates are still visible on many of these photographs.
By the end of the 1800s, special cameras were manufactured for taking panoramic photographs. These worked by either the lens or both the lens and the film actually rotating while the camera stood on a tripod. Some could produce full 360-degree photographs.
By 1900 mass-produced panoramic cameras were available. Al-Vista, Eastman Kodak, and Conley offered panoramic cameras for the amateur photographer. These made small panoramas about twelve inches long with a nearly 180-degree view. Meanwhile, commercial photographers used the Cirkut camera, patented in 1904, which used large format film and could capture 360-degree views up to 20 feet long. These were used to create many of the city views and group portraits in this collection.
Some photographers went to great lengths to capture their images. For example, George Lawrence specialized in aerial views, climbing high towers and even shooting pictures from flimsy cages suspended from balloons to photograph cities. Finally he invented a method using a camera suspended from kites! He also developed a flash powder for indoor banquet photography in the days before electric lights. Flash powder in as many as 350 locations would be simultaneously exploded by a single charge. When viewing these antique images, remember the ingenuity that went into creating them!
