isn’t she gorgeous?
we first saw this photobooth featured on photobooth.net back in april of ’09, and we fell in love!
before i continue on about what a beauty this booth is, i must encourage you to visit photobooth.net! you’ll find some of the most interesting photobooth-related blogging out there! also, click the link above for more photos of the booth!
back to the booth. she’s a model 11, and was manufactured sometime in the ’50′s. the model 11′s initial purpose was for taking ID photos. of course, the magnificence of the booth caught on…and they started popping up all over the place so that everyone could take part in the fun!
i love how many of the original photobooths drew people in by saying things like, “in complete privacy” on the booth’s outside poster. to me, that phrase sums up the allure of the photobooth altogether.
a couple named peter and ina are lucky enough to own that gem of a machine. the rest of their collection is so fun as well!
