Long before Instagram and Twitpics, there were Kodak Coloramas — 60-foot wide, 18-foot high transparencies that greeted visitors and commuters at Grand Central Terminal in New York City from 1950 to 1990. Deemed the largest pictures of their day, the images were clever Kodak ads that emphasized an idealized postwar American life, one that required a camera to capture family photos, leisure time and vacation travel. Now, they're back — and in the same venue. Thirty-six photographs from the original collection are being shown at the New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex at Grand Central through Nov. 1. The photos are smaller than the originals, but large enough to convey the visual impact the enormous images would have had. Subjects include a young woman photographing roses with an Instamatic camera and flash cube, deer in an idyllic meadow and a couple on a sailboat.
See the Kodak Coloramas at New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex, Grand Central Terminal, open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekends; 212-878-0106. Admission is free.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
