Photo Booth

1950’s Photo Booth

Who remembers going to Woolworth’s in the 50’s and 60’s to have their photos taken in the photo booth? 4 photos for 5 Cents! i did it and I remember me and my friends going and cramming in together all crunched up making funny face.

We would laugh so loud the woman who worked there would come over and yell, boys keep your voices down! Yeah we did that a number of times back then and thousands of others also thanks to  wonderful Woolworth’s for the memories!

And while I’m at it brings back to the times my friends and I went to the Woolworth’s in my area, that was a few blocks from where we lived. We loved the water pistols the most in those hot summer days and rush home fill them up and water each other down in the sun.

Wonderful Woolworths!

woolworths 40'sBack in the 50s our favorite store was Woolworth’s 5 and 10 cent stores! There was 3 in our city one just a few blocks from our homes.. We would go and buy those great water pistols for 10 cents and other toys not more than 25 cents.

And the one pictured here is from the 1940’s I used to go there a lot as a kid their lunch counter was great.. My Mother worked there during the war and my older Sisters worked there in the 50’s and they met the Men they married not long after. Wonderful Memories!
