Stonehenge - Panorama of the Ancient Druidical Remains
Get up close to the ancient British icon - before the coach parties descended.
Travelogue 1901 1 mins Silent
This is one of hundreds of panoramas made in the early days of film, when views of tourist attractions - like the ancient British icon, Stonehenge - became increasingly prolific in various media, as Victorian leisure time increased. In this view a policeman stands next to the great stones as the camera pans past, to give an impression of scale.
The panorama was a highly successful format that played to the strengths of the new medium of moving pictures. Panoramas could be seen in theatres as backdrops or as exhibits in their own right, depicting great battles or balloon ascents. Such 'widescreen' views would also have been seen in 3D as stereoscopes.
