View of San Francisco, 1853
Panorama comprised of six whole-plates
in vintage presentation frame


San Francisco was the most daguerreotyped city in the nation and, resultantly, there are several extant panoramas of San Francisco. This fact should come as no surprise as quite a number of eastern gallery operators obtained and exhibited panoramas in their galleries. Views such as this particularly magnificent presentation would entice visitors into daguerreian establishments to examine the vista of the far-off golden city.
