Photomatons - documenting jackassery since 1926. Apparently, they didn't have curtains on them back then, and attendants would stand by and suggest poses for the subjects.
I should probably be fined for gratuitous use of photo booth, but I'll attempt to excuse myself on the basis that photographs are a running theme. Something about the fact that picture-taking was becoming a much less formal affair in the 1920s delights me. With the popularization of things like the photo booth and Brownie camera, private photography was no longer relegated to dour-faced portraiture and memento mori (one sort easily being confused for the other at a glance). Life seems suddenly more acutely present in picture-relics of that era.
