Three sheets of film adhered together with clear tape to form one continuous image (each sheet is a 120-degree hologram); film is placed in a special rotating structure. As structure rotates, viewer sees a San Francisco trolley car / cable car pulling into a turnaround; a crowd of people stand around the area, waiting for the car to turn around; several people walk through the scene, closer to the foreground; creator's signature is written at the bottom middle portion of the film; rainbow-colored image.
Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
