INTERACTIVE PANORAMIC PHOTOGRAPH
In the early 1900s former U.S. Deputy Marshals met in Fort Smith for a reunion. This panoramic photograph of the reunion was taken in front of the historic courthouse and jail buildings.
Panoramic photographs of large groups of people were common to the era. The photographer arranged the people in a semi-circle and then used a special panoramic camera that panned the scene.
