Barry Island Photobooth No1

by Richard Overy

Barry island 1

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…
