Saucy Vintage Pictures From The Novelty Arcade Photo Booth

What do we call the painted boards with holes people push their head through to becomes someone else? Head in the hole? Face in the hole? Some collectors call them the The Novelty Photo Booth. In this gallery we see people having fun playing at dressing up – and undressing up. some of these pictures are saucy.  Taken between the 1940s and 1970s, these photographs are great fun.

If that’s your grandmother topless on the back of an elephant, or your uncle peeping though the bathroom window, please let us know:
