Summary:
In 1990 the Canadian Centre for Architecture acquired a copy of Eadweard Muybridge's rare mammoth-plate "Panorama of San Francisco from California Street Hill." Made in 1878 from the top of the Mark Hopkins mansion, this 360-degree photograph of the city, over five metres in length, was not only a remarkable technical achievement but a high point in the history of city view-making.
