The Oldest VR Experience in the World!
The Duryea Panorama was not painted but made up of a series of photographs. Townsend Duryea took this circular view of Adelaide late in 1865. His pictures, fourteen in all, were taken from the scaffolding around the newly completed tower of the Adelaide Town Hall.
He began in the morning, facing north,
and worked his way around the tower in an anti-clockwise direction to
avoid the sun shining into his camera lens. Joined together, the pictures
give a birdís view of colonial Adelaide.
