Trace History of Camera Design at New Exhibition by Photography Museum

The Art & Culture Program at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport is proud to welcome its newest exhibition by St. Louis-based International Photography Hall of Fame & Museum (IPHF).  "A Heritage of Cameras" is now on display in The Lambert Gallery in Terminal 1 through November 30. It features a collection of cameras from the 19th Century to present day.

Diverse names such as Kodak, Polaroid, Cohen, Pixie, Canon, Minolta and many other manufacturers are represented by a wide array of camera types: large format cameras, miniature cameras, every day street cameras and studio cameras. If your photographic memory needs a jolt, you can even spot a modern day smart phone in this collection, too, which has become the everyday camera of our times.

“In spite of the remarkable variety of camera designs, they all have three features in common: a light-tight chamber, a lens, and a sensitive recording area (film or image sensor),” said John Wm Nagel, Executive Director of IPHF. “The cameras in this exhibit are a sampling of the many directions camera design has taken.”

The exhibition offers a chance for photography enthusiasts to spot cameras they had during childhood, or ones they saw their grandparents use. The exhibition features cameras from a collection of 6,000 items in the IPHF collection. The display is curated across six displays: view cameras, stereo cameras, twin lens cameras, miniatures, folding cameras and box cameras.

The Lambert Gallery is located in Terminal 1 in Baggage Claim near the exit for Concourse C. “A Heritage of Cameras” was selected for display by the Airport Art Advisory Committee (AAAC) as part of a series of exhibitions in the Lambert Art and Culture Program. The exhibit is made possible by support from the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission. It’s also sponsored by Cheri K. Combs, Managing Partner, Deloitte. 

The International Photography Hall of Fame & Museum operates as a nexus for photographic activity in Grand Center and the St. Louis region. IPHF hosts photographic exhibits and competitions, displays its museum of cameras and provides workshops in all aspects of historical and contemporary photographic techniques. IPHF also presents guest speakers and panel discussions, hosts meetings of local photographic organizations, and offers its traveling exhibitions in venues across the country. Wider distribution channels include a quarterly newsletter, website, and podcasts. www.iphf.org

New Exhibit at Lambert Highlights Airport’s Rich History in Aviation

A new exhibit at Lambert- St. Louis International Airport may bring back memories for some travelers and serve as a history lesson for others.  The new exhibit, sponsored by The Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum, gives passengers a glimpse of historical artifacts from Ozark Airlines, Trans World Airlines and flight instruments from the days of Lambert Field.  This abbreviated history lesson lasts as long as it takes visitors to walk by the display cases.   But many visitors can’t resist stopping to read the information about the well preserved treasures. 

The exhibit showcases important memorabilia including the uniforms and travel bags of former stewardesses and pilots from Trans World Airlines and Ozark Airlines.  Travelers will also see samples of old airline tickets from most of Lambert Airport’s current carriers.  The display cases are filled with unique items reminiscent of the early days of aviation including a TWA customer blanket, a key chain and matches from the elite TWA Ambassadors Club. The exhibit is not without military presence with an actual ejection seat from a fighter jet.  A poster of Teddy Roosevelt in an open biplane in 1910 at Kinloch Field is further proof of St. Louis’ place in aviation history. The airport’s name changed several times from Kinloch Field to Lambert Field to its current name, Lambert- St. Louis International Airport. 

Passengers wishing to learn more can visit the Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum for additional aviation history.  The museum is located at the downtown St. Louis Airport in Cahokia, Illinois. 

The Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum is operated by volunteers and is only open on the weekends, Saturdays and Sundays, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Summer Shows Signs of Rebound in Lambert Passenger Activity

Lambert-St. Louis International Airport is starting to see a rebound of passenger activity levels with the peak summer travel season which attributed to a more positive enplanement trend for the second quarter of 2014.

 

With the most recent statistics for June 2014, the number of commercial enplaned passengers was down .05 percent with 589,071 passengers boarding flights versus 592,192 in June of 2013.  It was the busiest month of the year so far for Lambert. The total number of departing and arriving passengers for June was 1,175, 898 versus 1,184,461 in June 2013, down 0.7 percent.  For the first six months of 2014, Lambert is down 3.7 percent in total passengers.  

 

In the first quarter, total traffic of 2.7 million passengers was down 4.4 percent, year over year, primarily attributed to winter weather cancellations. The second quarter, total traffic of 3.3 million passengers was down 3.1 percent, year over year.

 

In June, several carriers added new flights including new service from St. Louis to Portland, OR and Trenton, NJ as well as more flights to San Francisco and Washington National.

 

Through the second quarter, Southwest Airlines continues to hold the biggest market share with 50 percent of passengers served at Lambert. American holds a 15 percent market share while Delta serves nearly 14 percent of Lambert passengers.
