2 January 2000, Charlottenburg Bahnhof, Berlin

Berlin-Charlottenburg is a railway station situated in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin. As usual I was always on the lookout for a photobooth and thus, very pleased to find this one. I was in Germany for the Year 2000 celebrations, and spent New Years Eve at the Brandenburg Gate. What an amazing night!

What did you do for the millennium celebrations? Please let me know in the comments section, below.

Real Life Cool McCool?

While this isn’t the greatest of photobooth photos, I love it as the subject reminds me of Cool McCool, one of my favourite cartoon characters as a kid.

Cool McCool was an animated series that ran on NBC from September 10, 1966 to August 30, 1969. It was created by Bob Kane – most famous as one of the creators of Batman. McCool was voiced by Bob McFadden who was also responsible for the voice of  Milton the Monster, another character I loved. The theme music is also a childhood favourite. Have a look at the video, below.

27 December 1999, Dublin Airport, Dublin

This large format photobooth photo was an option that was quite rare for chemical booths when they were more prevalent than the now ubiquitous digital booths. I was on my way to Berlin for the Year 2000 celebrations and found this booth near the check-in at Dublin Airport.

The photo measures 90 x 135 mm.

In this third instalment of Lori and Me, we have blondie Donna in the photobooth with two unidentified people, one of whom could be her mother, or the mother of the other young woman. Donna is looking more mature in this set, as is her friend who was pictured with Donna in the previous post in this series.

I think it is a great group of fun photos. Shame about the older woman who seems to think she is one of the teenage girls. For some reason she REALLY irritates me. I normally refrain from saying anything negative about the people in my photos, mostly because I don’t have anything bad to say about them, but in this case, urgh!

All the photos were taken on the same day somewhere in the USA. Unfortunately, none of them are dated.
