$_57While the panoramas of Athens and Piraeus appear to be still available on ebay and have been relisted, a further view of Constantinople is now available from the same seller. This hand coloured eight part view is attributed to J. Pascal Sebah (1823–1886). Sebah was based in Constantinople and operated there until his death. While his brother continued running the business, a few years later, in 1890, Sebah’s son went into partnership with Policarpe Joaillier (1872–1947).

Several significant museums and libraries hold copies of their panoramas, such as the Library of Congress,  with a few sold at auction over the last few years.
