Art: 1848 Daguerreotype Panorama

Since the Main Library last May restored and put on display its famous 1848 daguerreotype Panorama of the Cincinnati riverfront, some 2,000 people have come downtown to see it and to use the two accompanying interactive touch-screen displays that allow visitors to zoom in on magnified, digitized images from the original photograph. Now the library has created a website, accessible from any computer, with many of the same features — you can browse the overall panorama (spanning two miles of busy riverfront) and zoom in on various buildings, steamboats and streets that capture your attention. Log onto http://1848.cincinnatilibrary.org/ to begin your high-tech journey into the past.

The real Panorama is, of course, also still available to see and admire at the main branch library downtown (800 Vine St.) during regular hours.
