Image of artwork titled Box Brownie Panorama by artist Alice Blanch

In 1792, the Scottish entrepreneur Robert Barker merged the Greek word pan (all) with hórãma (view) when he was searching for a word to describe his 360 by 180 degree painting of the city of Edinburgh.

Like all successful inventions, the panorama was of its time and reflected the growing interest in communing with the natural world and travelling to exotic places.
