Muybridge Panorama on eBay

A panorama of San Francisco was sold recently on eBay, by the auction company PBA Galleries of San Francisco. Listed as follows:
1142: Muybridge’s Panorama of San Francisco 1877 Title: Panorama of San Francisco, from California Street Hill Author: Muybridge, Eadweard Description: 11-panel albumen photograph panorama, each image approximately 7 3/4 x 8″, mounted consecutively on archival board with overall measurements of the panorama 7 3/4 x 85″, framed under plexiglass, overall the piece measuring 13 x 89 1/2″. Muybridge’s breathtaking 360 degree panorama from California Street hill, taken, it is believed by scholars, between May 23 and June 23 (due to examination of the shadows), and probably on Monday (people are doing their wash). Probably Muybridge’s most famous single work, providing not only one of the best views of the bustling metropolis, but also a wealth of entertainment upon close examination. This picture tells many stories. Visible in striking detail are the mansions of the rich and the dwellings of the poor, the churches, hotels, banks, and other features. Muybridge also produced a mammoth plate panorama of San Francisco, which is excessively rare, only 5 or 6 copies known to exist. The present, smaller version was issued folding into cloth covers. Provenance: Daniel G. Volkmann, Jr.

.. The Trail of the End, Illuminations marking the end of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition 1915
The exposition closed on December 4, 1915, a day of commemorative events that concluded with fireworks trailing from pilot Art Smith’s “aeroplane”.Over the next year, the grounds were mostly cleared of all evidence of the fair. Even water, power, and gas lines were removed so that land could be returned to owners in restored condition. Building were either sold for scrap or moved to other locations. A number of repurposed buildings, as well as murals and architectural elements survive today. Only the beloved Palace of fine Arts–rebuild and restored– remains in its original location. Preservation efforts, substantially underwritten by Phoebe Apperson Hearst, began even before the fair closed…


– An extravagant show of colorful lights shot across building facades and danced in the sky above the exposition. Rejecting the standard practice of “outline lighting”, which traced the contours of buildings with rows of bulbs, Walter D’Arcy Ryan of the General Electric Company forever changed architectural illumination with his innovative scheme. The most spectacular effects came from the installation of forty-eight giant spotlights sitting atop a miniature Morro Castle on the waterfront. Called the Great Scintillator, it was manned by Marines who moved the spotlights to project changing colors and patterns on the canvas of fog that rolled in from the Golden Gate. When the weather failed to cooperate, tubes hidden in flagpoles pumped smoke and steam from a locomotive engine into the sky. Bursts of steam that shot through the beams mimicked fireworks during celebrations.Ryan also designed an electric kaleidoscope inside the glass dome of the Palace of Horticulture and lit the palaces, courts, and Joy Zone in novel ways. This synthesis of art and technology cost an estimated $52,000, about $1.23 million today.

Questions and Answers


 

The guy in this video is a bit superficial about saving his cars than the workers, however, there are some interesting view of the fire.  Take a peek at 9:24 and 10:04.  Notice the fire line.  Looks familiar, doesn’t it?  These fire lines are DEW laser fire.

 

If you’re not familiar with Non-Governmental Official agencies like ABAG and SCAG, they push the Agenda 21 initiatives under the guise of sustainability.

PEOPLE DIED IN THE PARADISE FIRE BECAUSE AGENDA 21 ROAD PLANNING TRAPPED THEM IN THE CITY

Comments to the video…

Lost my house in this fire. It was ungodly hot, and fast. No warning, no ems message…just cries of “get out now!” being heard through the neighborhood. Oh and look up SB901. Oh and another thing, this fire was planned, just not the way it went down when or where.
Marie S
SB901 full of their NWO double speak as they call that thing:  Wildfire Preparedness and Response.   It should be called: “The Serf’s and debtslaves of California will pay the millions and millions of dollars for PG&E et.al to burn them up and off their own land bill.”         —–>  ” SB 901 also creates a process for electrical utilities to seek approval from the California Public Utilities Commission to recoup costs from ratepayers in addition to utility shareholders, for 2017 and future wildfires”.
And may I just add, this wasn’t just Paradise that was lost. It was also the towns of Magalia, Gorda, and Concow.
Live near there but didn’t move there because of traffic problem. One narrow high way in and one way out. Horrible tragedy. Betcha they only allow stack n pack compartment living back in there! They have gold there in the hills of the feather river. Hmmm?
Those that lost their homes will probably not be allowed back in to rebuild .. this time. Watch.
Wish the people of Cali would rise up against their local governments.. Guarantee you will have help.. People in EVRY State is sick of watching what’s happenning to Cali.. If they take Cali down. Believe you me.. Other States will be a breeze..Stand your Ground!!!
Here in Columbia, S.C. they put in these stupid bike lanes and the citizen’s raised so much hell they did away with them. MORE MONEY WASTED.

 


Chemtrails = nano barium = droughts! Chemtrails = nano particulates of aluminum oxide saturating the forest with accelerant = like saturating the forest with lighter fluid = more intense forest fires! Droughts + flammable materials = more intense forest fires! Our weather is being held hostage by Geo-engineers ie chemtrailers!

 

Nano particles of aluminum. Very flammable! Especially when on dry brush trees and roofs
Will Wel yea they say the same chemicals that are found in chemtrails are the same chemicals found in thermite.
Was going to say, it burns like thermite!
KingCoin 420 firefighters have already stated that these fires are like fires they have never seen before. Bigger, hotter and faster.

I live in Penna, a small town. We got rid of a car lane and made it into a bike lane. It is 5 degree windchill today. The area is mostly elderly. Elderly are not going to bike errands when they have difficulty getting a shower. The population is aging… so more and more people are not going to be capable of brisk walking, or bike riding.
Marie S
San Diego has it all figured out they have built Stack and Packs beyond the imagination (I guess the younger generation doesn’t see the resemblance to the old  failed  tenement /projects of years ago?) because they now are called “apartment homes” anyways…back to what they have planned for us….as they crowd us together in apartment cells we are then suppose to rent their public scooters (yes like those you child plays on) or rent their public bicycles if we must leave our house, although I am not sure they want that now. Yes the sick, disabled and elderly will just have to join in their grand communist NWO UN Agenda 21 fun until the American people mobilize and take their country, communities and schools back from these sick Marxist fools.

 


If there is in fact a trend towards people not wanting to drive as much as the woman in the video claims, it’s because the government is forcing them in that direction via rules, regulations, and taxations that make owning and operating a vehicle an increasingly difficult proposition.
United We Stand
Rockefellers Built the United Nations. They have their dirty hands in everything. Schools, Pharmaceuticals, Depopulatons around the whole world.
Mike Andry
United We Stand What makes it more abominable is that the Rockefellers were “professing Christians” who didn’t practice TRUE Christianity!
United We Stand
@Mike Andry Nobody can profess to be a Christian when they look to Depopulate the world as Rockefeller began to do many years ago when he traveled to India. That’s when Rockefeller’s Depopulation Plan first began. Murder as many people as you can for profit !!!

I remember when they first built the skyway out as a four-lane highway between Paradise and Chico. Well, I remember my parents talking about it I should say. My grandfather worked for the Paradise Fire Department in the 60s and 70s. He said the Skyway was so important because it would give people a way to escape out of town. He was always warning that if Paradise ever caught on fire, the whole town would burn and thousands would die. Fire protection was always so important to the town. It was always discussed. To know that these communist bastards did this road narrowing to my hometown.. there are no words to describe my anger.

cattily they died as a result of chemtrails, DEW (direct energy weapons, primarily the athena laser they flaunt in the media, smart meters seem also to cause power surges that fry the wires in the house form the INSIDE out, looks like kiln when you see the wreckage

When we were told to evacuate my ex had the car and was out of town. I have a 3 year old and a 4 year old daughter and they both require child safety seats.. Our house was located on Pentz road which at that time was a evacuation route that only takes about 12 minutes to get you down the mountain to safety. I stood on Pentz with my two daughters and attempted to hitch hike a ride and watched in horror and disbelief as cars refused to stop for 15 seconds and pick us up as they drove to safety. Most of the vehicles only had one driver and no occupants and plenty of room. Finally a woman was on my street checking on her friend saw what was happening and immediately picked us up but a minute before they closed down Pentz as an evacuation route. They instead re-routed us on a road which quickly turned out to be a death trap. Total suicide in a more dense forrest. The road was very narrow and the heart or eye of the fire was headed right at it stronger than ever. People were directed down Pearson road only to find it was a parking lot that wasn’t moving surrounded by fire and smoke so thick and dark you could not see the sun. It was like midnight with no moon or stars shining. People behind us blocked anyone from backing up.. People panicked and some got out of their cars and attempted to make a run for it. Many didn’t make it very far because of the high heat and smoke inhalation and their clothes were catching on fire. Those abandoned cars effectively blocked the road and people just 50 feet behind them had no idea and were sitting ducks. The woman that picked us up saved our lives. None of us should be here right now. We were totally engulfed in flames and both the woman and I were on our cell phones saying goodbye to people. It was about 150 degrees in the cab and my kids were screaming. I covered them with my jacket and knew it would be all over in less than a minute. By the grace of god the car in front of us moved forward about 30 feet and we quickly moved forward enough to get out of the fireball. I got out to make sure our truck was not on fire. On the left side I saw about a dozen bodies. Some holding their pets. The problem is my 4 year old daughter witnessed exactly what I saw. We are alive but my daughter is having some terrible nightmares. I have had a child psychologist keeping close tabs on her. When I get the time I will seek help myself. I have never experienced anything so horrible in my entire life. It has had a very profound effect on my life. Losing my home and everything I owned seems so minuscule. I am more than grateful we survived. There was no traffic control, cops, firemen or anything on that road. We were just herded into a huge ceramics kiln to fend for ourselves and most everyone there was not thinking straight at all. Just reacting to the heat, lack of air and their clothes catching on fire. I cannot speak for the rest of Paradise but I can say what I saw where I was at early that morning on Pearson road. I kept wondering where the huge air tankers were. I felt a moment of relief when I heard what sounded like a huge jet somewhere above us so I got out again to look and quickly discovered the sound I was hearing was the fire on steroids.
