Model 11 Vintage Photo Booth for Sale
we first saw this vintage photo booth for sale on photobooth.net back in april of ’09, and we fell in love! isn’t she gorgeous?
before i continue on about what a beauty this booth is, i must encourage you to visit photobooth.net! you’ll find some of the most interesting photobooth-related blogging out there! also, click the link above for more photos of the booth!
back to the booth. she’s a model 11, and was manufactured sometime in the ’50’s. the model 11’s initial purpose was for taking ID photos. of course, the magnificence of the booth caught on…and they started popping up all over the place so that everyone could take part in the fun! These model 11 photo booths with curved wood grain sides and cool teal color are very rare these days.
i love how many of the original photobooths drew people in by saying things like, “in complete privacy” on the booth’s outside poster. to me, that phrase sums up the allure of the photobooth altogether. There is just nothing like grabbing a friend (or your special lady/guy), closing the curtains and creating a one of a kind film photo strip. You really are creating a piece of art!
a couple named peter and ina are lucky enough to own that gem of a machine. the rest of their collection is so fun as well! Its great to see photo booth enthusiasts carrying on the of the film tradition.
We have our own take on the vintage photo booth called the Classic Majestic Photo Booth. This booth might be a digital recreation, but we tried to keep with the vintage photo booth inspiration. You can learn more about our photo booths and how to get one here.
