This print, Schaaf number 2957, is the first in a sequence of four which together form a panorama. The other three prints belong to Schaaf number 3455, Schaaf number 4560, and finally Schaaf number 3471.

The general panorama effect can be recreated by adding the four images (in the above sequence) to the website's 'Image Comparison' tool. For the best results use the images attached to the 'Master Record'. Click the 'Add to Comparison' button below the four images in turn, then click 'Comapre Images'. Once the four images are arranged on your screen, use the toggles in the top left corner of each of the four image compartments to adjust the contrast, brightness or tone to your taste. Finally, use the zoom buttons, together with the 'up' and 'down' arrows to line up the panorama.

The panorama photographs of Calvert Richard Jones feature in a Talbot project post
