Item Description: 

During the Romantic period, panoramas—particularly those of exotic places—emerged as a popular form of public entertainment (Comment 7-8). Bullock’s View of the City and Valley of Mexico, from Tacubaya is the first panoramic landscape image produced in Mexico, and became the basis for the first public panorama of a Mexican locale to be exhibited (in London) anywhere in the world.
