    Yes, that's the Cirkut camera that's been mentioned above.

    I can see the images now, and I'm fairly sure they were made with the Cirkut camera. The format is much longer than any single-sheet pano format, and they have the look of images made with a swing-lens camera.

    There might be one or two Cirkut photographers here. If not, try the Q&A forum at lfphoto.info. I know there are one or two there.

    I don't know the answer, but The G Eastman House has quite a few, very nice examples taken with a cirkut camera. One has all the kodak employees standing in a line . The first individual on the left can also be found on the far right smirking. Obviously he ran behind the camera to the other side after it had shot him in his original position.

    The image is a contact from a neg that was 4' long.

    Eastman Kodak made Swing Lens Panoramic Camera - the Kodak #4 Panoram that used 103 film for a negative size of 3.5"x12" The Swing lens camera is not the same as a Cirkut camera which is considered to be a rotational camera since it rotates of the tripod table up to 360 degrees. The Swing lens is just that a lens that swings from left to right like the Widelux. Have a look at the attached sites for pictures and descriptions of the cameras and the images they make.

    David, I wasn't thinking of a Cirkut, I was thinking of the swing lens camera that gordrob mentioned. Used to see 'em in fair numbers in camera shows, when there were camera shows.
