Join Nick Wright on a journey back in time to experience ultra-high resolution views of the Gold Rush San Francisco with wide panoramic views over the City. Mr. Wright has painstakingly recreated the early panorama by assembling the 1851 NGC multi-plate daguerreotypes of the nascent city as it developed. The location of the NGC panorama will be explored and the center plate recreated. We will also see the actual store ships in the Yerba Buena Cove before they were destroyed by fire in 1851. This is an amazing chance to see old San Francisco like never before.
Nick Wright is the founder of the History Alliance with 850,000 members including San Francisco History, US History. His specialty is in early San Francisco panoramic photography by Watkins, Muybridge, and W. H. Jackson etc.
