Frederick Brehm is one of the people credited with developing the Cirkut panoramic camera. Initially manufactured and marketed by the Rochester Panoramic Camera Company, the camera was later manufactured by the Folmer and Schwing Division of the Eastman Kodak Company.
Brehm worked at Eastman Kodak and also taught photography at the Mechanics Institute (now the Rochester Institute of Technology).
Making Long Panoramas
In 1906 Frederick Brehm visited Washington, D.C., and made a 360-degree view of the city that was 20-feet long. During this visit to Washington, Brehm also made two smaller panoramic photographs of the city, and submitted them to the Library of Congress for copyright protection.
