View of houses, [1860s] : panoramic view

This photograph shows a panoramic view, incorporating several houses, taken from a high vantage point probably in 1860s. Capturing such panoramic views was a must-do for commercial photographers then. Unfortunately, common vantage points like Mount Wallach and Mount Erskine have since disappeared. Title devised by Library staff. Date of creation estimated.
