Panorama of the Burgess Shale, c. 1910

A panoramic photograph showing the main Burgess Shale locality

The National Geographic article included this supplement featuring a panoramic image of the area. The image folded out to a size of 2.5m (8 feet), making it the single largest photograph ever included in the magazine. About 100,000 copies were printed at the time; few of these copies remain today.
