Donna (blonde) and unidentified friend

In this fourth instalment of Lori and Me, we have Donna in a photobooth with two friends. None of the photos identify any of the girls but one friend, Mona, is identified in later photos from the series. Comparing these to the previous post, Donna is again looking slightly older and in my opinion, she is becoming more and more beautiful.

All of these photos were taken somewhere in the USA but none of them are dated, unlike others in the series.

Donna is photographed with many boyfriends and girlfriends over a period of 4 years from 1969 to 1973 in a large series of photobooth photos. To see the rest of the posts in this series, please click here.

Real Life Cool McCool?

While this isn’t the greatest of photobooth photos, I love it as the subject reminds me of Cool McCool, one of my favourite cartoon characters as a kid.

Cool McCool was an animated series that ran on NBC from September 10, 1966 to August 30, 1969. It was created by Bob Kane – most famous as one of the creators of Batman. McCool was voiced by Bob McFadden who was also responsible for the voice of  Milton the Monster, another character I loved. The theme music is also a childhood favourite. Have a look at the video, below.


Cartoon McCool – my man!

27 December 1999, Dublin Airport, Dublin

This large format photobooth photo was an option that was quite rare for chemical booths when they were more prevalent than the now ubiquitous digital booths. I was on my way to Berlin for the Year 2000 celebrations and found this booth near the check-in at Dublin Airport.

The photo measures 90 x 135 mm.

These come from my series Photobooth 41 Year Project. You can see all the posts that document the series by clicking here.

In this third instalment of Lori and Me, we have blondie Donna in the photobooth with two unidentified people, one of whom could be her mother, or the mother of the other young woman. Donna is looking more mature in this set, as is her friend who was pictured with Donna in the previous post in this series.

I think it is a great group of fun photos. Shame about the older woman who seems to think she is one of the teenage girls. For some reason she REALLY irritates me. I normally refrain from saying anything negative about the people in my photos, mostly because I don’t have anything bad to say about them, but in this case, urgh!

All the photos were taken on the same day somewhere in the USA. Unfortunately, none of them are dated.
