The Kodak Colorama of photographs were a collection of large-scale prints of various places around the world that were rotated in and out of Grand Central Terminal for over 4 decades.

For 40 years, nobody walking through Grand Central Station could have missed the Kodak Coloramas. Aside from showcasing Kodak's technological and creative prowess, these 18' X 60' foot pictures were appreciated for promoting a critical cause – photography for photography's sake.

This photo of the Brooklyn Bridge, East River and the Manhattan skyline hung in Grand Central in May and June of 1958.
