Caron talking about the camera, part 2

"And this is one of the most famous panoramas taken by Walcott himself, showing the Burgess Shale, which is located around here. Walcott’s camp will have been around here, so every day he will have walked and used his horses to go to the quarry, which would have been located around here. This is an image that was taken probably in 1910, and eventually was published by National Geographic in 1911. And to this day it remains the largest picture ever published by any magazine anywhere in the world. It’s more than 2 metres in width. The actual panorama was offered as a supplement to all the subscribers of National Geographic and we have a copy here that is relatively rare. And this is an original reprint of this particular picture."
