Down East at the Lobsterama
Photograph by Luis Marden

The Lobsterettes not only lit up a 1950s lobster festival in Rockland, Maine—they also made an appearance in “Down East Cruise” (National Geographic, September 1952). Marden’s photo showcases the vibrant colors, especially reds, that were then possible with the relatively new Kodachrome film. The film’s chromatic punch drove many Geographic photographers to devise creative ways of getting more red into their pictures. (One common trick: When photographing people, put red shirts on them.)
