Description

24 Col x 3 Row Pano shot on Canon 7D with Canon 50mm F1.4 Lens
1/800 at F8 and ISO 100

The centre of this pano is looking east to the city skyline. The field of view is 254 x 55.75 degrees

The view was shot in the early 1950's by the photographer Reg Lambert using a Cirkut No. 10 Panoramic Camera manufactured in 1904. The actual camera he used can be viewed here:

This black and white image and an updated colour version shot in the late 70's or early 80's was published in the book "Perth and Fremantle - A Pictorial Contrast" by Phil Gray in 1986. You can view this page spread from the book here:

A full 360 degree view from the main lawn can be found here:

I would like to thank Sarah Murphy, the Manager of Properties and Collections of the National Trust of Australia (WA) for graciously providing access to the Old Perth Observatory Tower where this image was captured.
