View life through a wide angle and see your horizons broaden.

From the photographic collection comes a selection of panoramic images. These wide photographs offer a field of view greater than the human eye can see at any one instant.

Landscape panoramas are most popular to take and to view. A main attraction of this effect is that it connects locations that are normally thought of as unrelated. The view from Titirangi/Kaiti Hill is a common target and a number of early vistas appear in the exhibition.

Other images demonstrate the ability to include so much in one photograph. For instance a commercial shot captures 14 trucks of the Buske firm outside the Mangapapa Garage.

Take A Long View has given the museum the opportunity to join single images found amongst the archives into one continuous wide view print. The visitor can expect to see some historic wide views never assembled before.
