While the attendant handled the lighting and snapped the actual shutter, the developing and printing was still largely automated as a "while-you-wait" service.

  1. PRICELESS! I don't know which one made me laugh the most, but I can't get past the image of the scrapbook full of commas. And did she bring it out at parties to show people?

    1. Thanks Tattered and Lost. I'm glad you enjoy them. Believe me, it's a lot of fun to put one of these photobooth pages together. I'll bet she did show her collection off at every opportunity; holidays, parties and between clauses.
