PHOTOS: Lost Original “Rocky Horror” Polaroids Were Discovered In NYC Subway

Strange objects on New York City subway platforms should typically be avoided at all cost, but one man made an incredible, if not altogether obscure, score.

Brady Marter noticed some Polaroid photographs while waiting for the C train, and upon inspection, quickly realized whom they depicted — Tim Curry, behind the scenes of The Rocky Horror Show, in full Frank-N-Furter getup.

Unless these were photos of other photos, he knew the Polaroids had some serious collector’s value. Clearly someone had accidentally dropped them.

He uploaded his epic groundscore onto the Collector’s Weekly site:

Founds these on the platform of the C train in TriBeCa in 2011. They are photos of Tim Curry and the cast of Rocky Horror during the making of the film. Some have writing on the back and Frankenfurter kissed the back of one.

Since whomever dropped the shots was surely scouring the internet for mentions of them, it wasn’t long until Brady got a hit:

These were part of a collection I bought from someone in New Mexico. These were used in making The Rocky Horror Scrapbook. I had it shipped to my office (I worked on the corner of Hudson and Canal) and was taking them home. A bunch fell out of my bag and I picked them up. When I got home I realized I missed one. Looks like I missed more than one! If it’s any proof, I’d be happy to show you the rest of the collection.

And like a true Manhattan fairy tale, the photos were returned to their owner, who gifted one to Brady as thanks.

Check out the lost and found shots below:
