Washington is a state chock-full of fine vistas and panoramic views, so it stands to reason that they would have some great panoramic photographs. The University of Washington Libraries has created this collection to pay tribute to such items, and they have included sweeping city views of Seattle, University of Washington campus scenes, and Japanese American organizations. First-time visitors should read the highly informative essay, "History of Panoramic Photography" to become familiar with the nuances of this artistic and documentary tradition. After this, they can look at over 100 panoramic photographs that include a dramatic shot of battleships docked at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in 1910 and an early image of the town of Kent, Washington. The site is rounded out by links to two additional essays from the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Divisions.
