Title:

Panoramic views of San Francisco, Calif. after the earthquake and fire of 1906
San Francisco Examiner

Creator/Contributor:

Kytka, Theodore.

Abstract:

Collection includes several rotogravure panoramic views of San Francisco taken after the 1906 earthquake and fire. Most of the photomechanically reproduced views were published in weekly installments in the San Francisco Examiner. The collection features a multi-part panoramic view from atop the Fairmont Hotel taken by Theodore Kytka, and other views - most of them aerial- taken at various vantage points by the George R. Lawrence Co. (Lawrence developed a system of kites and wires - his patented "Captive Airship" - which supported a panoramic camera hundreds of feet above ground). The collection also includes one panoramic view published by the Los Angeles Times and two views with no photographer's attribution.
