This finding aid brings together information about the Huntington's collections of panoramic negatives. These 436 negatives
are located in three separate collections: the Verner Collection
of Panoramic Negatives, the Harold A. Parker Collection of Photographs and Negatives, and the "'Dick"' Whittington Studio
Collection of Photographs and Negatives. They depict Los Angeles and surrounding areas,
and group portraits, 1889-1958. The collection is an important resource for the visual history of Los Angeles, and contains
photographs by some of the better-known photographers and photographic firms of the
first part of the twentieth century.
