Photo Booths

Many photo booths were for a purpose: for a job application, to share a single picture with someone or to submit to a self-serving publication dedicated to your very being. Another factor was that, when you were not the only model, the frames would be divided between those who participated.

The result is that not all the poses remained intact. To find a four framer is a real rarity.

Except for those of an egomaniacal, self-obsessed ne’erdowell who’d run down to Woolworths at the drop of a hat.

[Note Bene] After the photo appeared with Marilyn I was sued in Federal Court and ordered to stop tanning. It was alleged I was trying to achieve a permanent black face by natural means. I regret this error in judgement.
