Footnotes

  • One of the landmarks of 19th-century American photography, this remarkable panorama shows the rapid growth of San Francisco in the decades after the Gold Rush. Muybridge's panorama provides a 360° degree view of the city from a vantage point on the central tower of the unfinished Nob Hill residence of railroad baron Mark Hopkins, then the highest point in the developed portion of the city. The view reaches some fifty miles into the distance and encompasses a width of fifteen miles.
    Muybridge's panorama was advertised for sale in July 1877 at either $8.00 for a rolled copy or $10.00 accordion-folded and bound. Buyers could buy the panorama directly from Muybridge, or through Morse's Gallery.
