It’s not clear from the article whether or not the Smithsonian Institution has a photobooth (though they certainly should), but the September issue of the institution’s Smithsonian Magazine covers the history of photobooths in a piece titled “Four for a Quarter” (archived on our site here) that is well worth a read. 

In the article, writer Kenneth R. Fletcher talks with Nakki Goranin about her book and discusses the history and future of photobooths. Accompanying the online version of the article are a photo gallery, a short video, and an interview with the author, who discusses writing the piece.

Fletcher mentions in the piece and in his interview; welcome to all of those who are visiting our site thanks to the article.

    Hello! I believe there is a photobooth at the National Museum of American History. It’s been undergoing renovation and doesn’t reopen until November (in theory, anyway). I’m a Smithsonian student, however, and I was in there last week and saw some very nice digital photobooths. We’ll have to wait until after November 21st (again, theoretically, that place is pretty torn apart still) to see if they have a photomatic.
