    Is the one you have here a photoshopped version of the one on Wikipedia?

    Hi Mason - I’m not sure! The picture was passed to me, and I don’t know its original source. The Photocromatic colouring is original, and it may have been Photoshopped to remove the joins of the panorama…

    That is incredible. It’s always ace to see actual photographs from times when you didn’t think cameras existed…

    Thank you. Great to see all the 19th century vision, in particular.

    Would make an ideal book for my coffee table…
