Time Sweeps
From the Times Building 1905

Panorama films were popular in the early days of motion pictures.  I made these images by joining captures from an mpeg file downloaded from the Library of Congress.  The original movie and more information about it can be found at this link.  And here you can see a picture of Times Building as it was.  Click the image below for a sweeping picture from Times Square to Bryant Park made by merging 32 frames from the original film by Wallace McCutcheon.

Also taken from the Times Building,
now called One Times Square,
here is an image captured
moments ago by the
Times Square Cam.




These are typical frames used in this construction.
