Panoramic Photographs: 1851-1991
A catalogue of panoramic photos dating back to the mid-nineteenth century. Disasters are a recurring theme. The 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire photo is particularly evocative. I had no sense of the scale of the fire until now. But I am left with the conviction that civilization will pick up and rebuild no matter what gets thrown at the West.
