Souvenir book and patch from a 360 degree painted panorama depicting Southern Salifornia, housed in an empty Hollywood building from 2001-2004. Painted by Sara Velas, the panorama imagines what the Los Angeles area would have looked like in the 1850s and pays homage to the form, which has lost popularity since its height in the 19th century.
