utah_blog.jpgThanks to a slew of contributions this week from E.Y., can finally put Utah on the map, bringing our current count up to 114 photobooths in 19 states and two foreign countries!

During a cross-country road trip in 1997, my best friend and I determined that Utah was the home of the best milkshakes in the country, found at the plentiful Frostops we came across around southern Utah.

Now we can confirm that Utah is also the capital of affordable photobooths. Six of the seven booths Evita submitted charge just $1, and the seventh booth just $2. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a $1 photobooth — the Children’s Museum black and white machine in Boston used to be a dollar, but has since gone up. The price is definitely right in Utah.

I’d like to add that E.Y. gave us the best kind of submissions possible: photos of the booths, sample photos, and great documentation, including price, address, and description — including the official store number for each Kmart location. Thanks, E.Y.!

The new Utah photobooths: in Salt Lake City, The Utah Museum of Natural History, Kmart 4273, Kmart 4159; Kmart 7624 in Draper, Kmart 7618 in West Jordan, Kmart 3085 in Woods Cross, and The South Towne Center in Sandy.

    My parents owned the Twin Pines Motel two doors south of the Frosttop in Kanab. In the 60’s I ate many meals and milk shakes there. When I was five Bob Russel built the place and my friend and I would go there every day and play in the construction site. My blog is found at leave a comment.
