Vintage Photo Booth Portraits

I’ve become a tiny bit obsessed with vintage photo booth photographs – it is just so amazing to see these wonderful pieces of human history. When I look at them, I can’t help but wonder about the people in the photos, who they were, what their lives were like, what stories they have to tell. Today I thought I would share some of my favourites with all of you.

Oh, and these two wise guys with their hand puppets! Lest we forget that dudes are ridiculous and like taking funny photo booth photos, too!

What I would give to find out who all of these people are, to hear their stories…

What do you think of these amazing photos? Do you have a favourite? What do you think the stories behind them are? Do you know any of the people in these photos? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    • Me too! I actually have a small collection of vintage photos that I used to pick up in antique stores – I should take some pictures of them and share them on the blog, some of them are really amazing – actually, I WILL do that! Thank you for making me think of it! πŸ™‚ ❀

    • It can be so much fun to try and imagine who these women were and what their lives were like! And I’ve always loved photo booths – even though I hate having my photo taken, every time I see a photo booth I get the urge to go in and take some pictures because there is just something about it that I love. Over the years I’ve popped into those things several times just for fun or because I had just gotten a hair cut that I liked or whatever, though I haven’t in….yeesh, about a decade or so now! Finding the photos for this post has made me tempted to go to the photo booth at my local movie theatre and start snapping away! πŸ™‚
