Rocketts Panorama

– taken from Libby Hill looking south. Probably taken by A. J. Russell

This two-plate panorama was taken from the southern edge of Libby Hill, and shows the complete Rocketts shipyard area.

These plates are from the National Archives: (NWDNS-111-B-5963 – left) and (NWDNS-111-B-5869).

Both images that make up this panorama were also taken as stereo negatives now at the National Archives: (NWDNS-111-B-496 – left) and (NWDNS-111-B-5471 – right).
