Saw this shop while waiting at a bus stop in Ravenna, Italy. They didn’t seem to have many customers.
Ah memories. There used to be a little foto hut just down the street from my house when I was a kid. Drive-thru even!
When I was very young, I thought the person in the PhotoMat lived inside that little building.
Can you believe I used to work in one… 😉
It sure seems that way now. Talk about a type of business that nearly disappeared over night. I find it difficult to find camera stores too — much less places that only sell film. When we were on vacation in Florida a few years ago, I tried to find a camera store for a replacement part (I forget what I needed) and realized that there was not one specialty camera store less than 300 miles away. And, of course, all of the big box stores only sold new cameras. Unbelievable.
So what did you end up doing?
Like the last of its kind.
Exactly Anne : ))))
