Capturing Time: Panoramas of Old Australia

Panoramas, whether painted or photographed, were the nineteenth-century equivalent of IMAX or Google maps.  Capturing Time, Panoramas of Old Australia features 23 of these wide-angled views of  landscapes and cities, which fascinated viewers who had never before seen such far-reaching perspectives on the world around them.

Join author Edwin Barnard and The Canberra Times Editor-at-large Jack Waterford,  who will officially launch the book, to hear more about these images and the history of the time in which they were depicted.
