Towards the close of the Crimean war Mr. Robertson, of Constantinople, took from the same station three views of Sebastopol, so as to form when mounted side by side a sort of panoramic view, including an angle of 120. Although this triple picture possessed extraordinary interest, one could not help regretting the defects introduced by joining three separate prints; for these being better in definition and also lighter in the centre than at the sides the three patches of light and two dark joinings did not look well. This triple picture could have been taken at one operation by a panoramic lens, and the definition would then have been equally good and the light equally distributed along the horizontal line; the effect in other respects remaining the same.
