Panorama Photos of San Francisco, 1878

Eadweard James Muybridge was an English photographer important for his pioneering work in photographic studies of motion and in motion-picture projection. He adopted the name Eadweard Muybridge, believing it to be the original Anglo-Saxon form of his name. He immigrated to the United States as a young man but remained obscure until 1868, when his large photographs of Yosemite Valley, California, made him world famous.

In 1878, he set up a battery of 13 cameras on the tower of the unfinished Mark Hopkins Mansion, each one aimed at a different part of the City.
