Wonderful Colorama Photographs

From 1950 until 1990, Kodak’s gigantic Colorama photographs dominated the east wall of Grand Central's Main Concourse. Using what was then innovative technology to print oversize photos that measured 60 feet in length and nearly 20 feet high, these images portrayed an idealized view of American life. They promoted photography as essential for documenting leisure activities as well as capturing special family moments with beautiful, richly-colored photos.
