photo booths – nostalgia writ large

Montreal prints in colour

Toronto. Are you into photo booths? Can you remember when the nerds had cameras but everyone else crowded into a photo booth for a memorable photo of a day at the fair, seaside, etc.? That was before everyone had a smartphone…

How about a photo booth  web site? a blog? or even a CONVENTION on nostalgia (a.k.a. photo booths …)?? Those were the days indeed.

In my youth, the photo booth prints were strictly black and white in a strip. We could crowd three people in a shot (at best). The web site/blog link above includes a CBC article on the last photo booths in Quebec.

My thanks to George Dunbar for suggesting this topic and blog. Have a look at how we once captured outings!
