This corner bar in Pilsen, tucked under the Dan Ryan Expressway, seemed to me to be in the middle of nowhere, but when I went inside, it was much bigger than I'd expected, and packed with people. Thankfully, it was a very different scene than Shenanigan's and Excalibur, my two previous stops, and I made my way to the booth in the corner, through the tables of people enjoying their beers.

The photobooth, a Model 21E black and white machine, had the classic "Photographs" sign on top, and produced great photos with four rounded corners on each shot. Very nice.

UPDATE Andrew writes that the booth here is in poor condition as of a visit today, but it's still working.
