This is an unusual polaroid photobooth set. It isn’t in the greatest of conditions but due to its rarity it is worth documenting.
I am not sure if polaroid photobooths still exist. They were certainly never common. This photo is from the USA and has no identifying information. I guess it dates from the 1990s.
6 November 1997, Melbourne
I am never sure whether to count this type of booth photo as part of my chronological series as it isn’t of the same aesthetic and detail of the photos from the wonderful chemical booths. However as the old-time booths are more and more rare, and digital booths are easier to get access to, I decided to add this to the group as an early example of where booth photos were heading at this time.
