Tinted by hand 5


Photo booth portraits are always fascinating, and this one has been lovingly hand tinted at some time. It is also larger than the passport size, measuring around 2″ by 4″. You can still specify one large print rather than four small ones in booths today. The photo came from America, which suggests it was taken there, and dates from the 1940s. It’s impossible to know if the operator did the colouring or the owner, but it is very well done and quite subtle for the most part.
