Photobooth Selfies – A Century of Women

By Glamourdaze @GlamourdazeBlog

Candid, funny and touching photos of past lives –


Back in July 2014 – the year of the Selfie, Glamourdaze took a look back to a time before smartphones and the magic of the Photobooth selfie.
What we found was a treasure of portraits going back to the Edwardian Era. Google Photobooth women selfies and you’ll see a lot of other sites who followed with similar themed posts – such is the fickle hive mind of the world wide web, but why not !
So we decided to run it again, only this time we’ve added two more decades of photo booth portraits to complete a century! My own personal favorite is still of the young Edwardian lesbian couple stealing a secret kiss behind the curtain.
The photo sources are all to be found at the end of the post. If we’ve left any out – give us a shout.
