Curatorial description (Accessed: 23 December 2014)
 
This panoramic daguerreotype by Noel-Marie Paymal Lerebours and Marc Louis Francois Secrétan is an exceptional item. There are only very few of this type in existence.
 
One of the centres of the early photographic scene in Paris was the business run in the Place du Pont-Neuf by the optician, photographer and publisher Lerebours and his business partner Secrétan. This panorama daguerreotype was taken from the roof of the Louvre and shows several characteristic Parisian structures: Notre-Dame Cathedral; Pont Neuf, the oldest bridge in the city; and the Seine and its banks, which dominate the image.
