This photobooth, which lived for many years in Asbury Park, New Jersey's historic Palace Amusements, is now back in the Shore community, 15 years after it was sold to shop keepers in Vermont. The booth, a Model 14, is located in the lower level of The Shoppes at the Arcade, after being refurbished by the Save Tillie preservation group.

UPDATE 4/14/14: Emma writes that this booth is no longer at this location. "...Upon entering the building found no photobooth. I was told that it was moved to the Silver Ball Museum on the boardwalk. We booked it over there, and jumped in the booth, only to discover (wayyyy too late) that it was digital."

We're not sure if the photochemical booth was moved to the museum and later replaced with a digital machine, or if the removal and switch happened at the same time.
