Barry Island Photobooth No1
by Richard Overy
This tiny Photobooth image (1.5 x 3.25″) was bought at Wolverhampton Camera Fair last weekend with two others.
No information on the reverse although the front of the photograph provides the date – June 10th 1935, the location – Barry Island and the weight of the sitter 18 stone and 2 pounds (although the gentleman in the photo looks quite slim!).
I haven’t seen photobooth/seaside images with the sitters weight included, perhaps someone else can tell me more…
