In 1859, Thomas Sutton invented a panoramic camera which used a wide-angle lens in conjunction with curved glas plates. Only six of the cameras were ever made. These four 10 x 5 inch (25.4cm x 12.7cm) curved-glas wet-collodion negatives are among the few known surviving examples of the negatives which Sutton's camera produced.
