As it has been adapted to the needs of contemporary air travel, the terminal has fallen into disrepair and lost much of the grandeur that made it a symbol of all that was modern and new. Ezra Stoller's sharp-eyed photographs offer a return trip to the terminal at the time of its opening, when dapper travelers moved smartly through its majestic spaces."--Jacket."@en
