Now go outside and look at the sky.

Edo Panorama

edo.jpgSeveral blogs have been linking to this remarkable image over the last few days and I see no reason to hold back. :-)

If you click through to the large panorama at Wikipedia, you'll see one of the earliest existing photos of Edo, which was rename a few years later to Tokyo. This panorama is from 1865, taken by Felice Beato, one of the earliest pioneers of travel photography and probably one of the first to make use of photographic panoramas to show the world to the ones back home.

It's pretty amazing to think that this photo is now more than 140 years old.
