We would like to share with you this rare panorama of Caracas taken by an anonymous photographer circa 1900. As far as we know this is a unique print.
(Click on the image below to see it full size)
This photograph was taken from El Calvario and it is almost a 360° view of the valley. Over a meter long it is a striking and highly detailed view of the city. It’s especially interesting to see the whole Avila almost barren – way before the mountain was replanted.
It is a 5-plate panorama, on printing out paper and it measures 18 x 116 cms.
Next, we are showing you plate by plate starting from left to right.
These close ups help us have an idea of the day-to-day life in the city.
