Smart Bar, located in the same building as the Metro near Wrigley Field, is a downstairs bar and club that features DJs nightly. I was allowed five minutes to go in to try out the photobooth, located at the bottom of the stairs in the bar area.

The photobooth, a black and white Model 14, was the only booth out of the seventeen that I came across during my long night in Chicago that was being used by someone other than me; a group of three people was waiting for their photos to come out when I arrived. My photos, when they came out, were truly bizarre: great contrast and tone, but the strangest, widest white borders I'd ever seen.
