This black-and-white booth is a beautiful Auto-Photo Model 11, with its distinctive rounded ends. The internals look pretty new, and the date on the metal registration plate reads "90." The photos come out a little muddy, with barely any border between them, and the back of the strip was coated in a brown liquid. It all adds up to a unique look. Inside, the MoPA staff have affixed a warning: "This is a vintage photobooth." The booth is a bargain at just $2.

UPDATE 2/14/11: Maybe we just didn't want to admit it, but we've been remiss in not updating this listing since hearing from Barbara, Alison, and Connie over the years: this booth is gone, as has been since 2009.
