Howard Clinton Tibbitts (1863-1937), a San Francisco based photographer employed by the Southern Pacific Railroad, produced a number of lantern-sized Paget Plate Color photographs of the 1915 San Francisco Panama Pacific International Exposition. The Paget Plate was a competitor of the autochrome though not nearly as successful. I have a good dozen or so of Tibbetts Paget Plates of the PPIE in my collection.

In addition, Arnold Genthe, another San Francisco based photographer, produced autochromes of the San Francisco Panama Pacific International Exposition. At least one of those can be seen in the collection of the Library of Congress.

What size are these autochromes?
