Photo booth selfies of women from 1900’s to the 1970’s-
The first self portrait vending machine or “photo booth” was introduced back in 1883 by a Percival Everett. By the early Edwardian era – photobooth selfies had become quite a craze.
They were commonly found at sea resorts. The first set of images found by Walter Plotnick is a touching collection of selfies by a young lesbian couple. The secrecy of the photo-booth allowed people to create secret keepsakes for themselves. They also captured a spontaneity that is rarely seen in early photography of women.
