William Amos Haines Panoramas

William Amos Haines (United States, 1877-1953) produced panoramic photographs throughout the United States using a Cirkut 10 camera, which produced film 10 inches wide by up to several feet long. First based in Conneaut, Ohio, and later in Glendale, California, Haines photographed, printed, and often hand-colored his photographs himself. He marketed these photographs to schools, who could appreciate the large-scale photographs and educational subjects. The CMP has approximately 800 William Amos Haines negatives, which were a gift from the Western Photographic Collectors' Association, as well as over 100 vintage prints, many of which are hand-colored. A selection of these photographs and negatives have been digitized and are available online.
