Photographed by Eadweard J. Muybridge.
Title supplied from portfolio of nearly identical, smaller format panorama of 1877 (Bancroft copy: BANC PIC 1946.011--ALB).
Photographed in 1878, prior to July 8 (cf. David Harris. Eadweard Muybridge and the photographic panorama of San Francisco, 1850-1880. p. 37).
The views in this panorama are from the same perspective as those in the smaller-sized 11 photo ed., but the appearance of some of the buildings confirms the later date. (For example, construction of the Crocker residence appears to be complete, and California St. cable car tracks have been laid.)
Accordion-folded, bound in portfolio.
