app_photo.jpgIn the August 27 edition of the Asbury Park Press, reporter Shannon Mullen writes about the way the traditional photobooth “quietly endures” despite the passage of time in an article titled “Summer memories are just a snapshot away.”

Mullen interviews kids using the photobooth at Jenkinson’s South Arcade in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey (a location we haven’t yet visited — contributions, anyone?) as well as Photo-Me’s Gary Gulley. She also provides a brief history of the machine, and interviews some older folks with photobooth memories of their own. The article features a larger-than-life-size scan of a photostrip, as well. It’s never too late for a trip to the Jersey Shore, I say.

The article is archived here.
