Photobooths, stickybacks and another local mystery photo

Christmas and flu have slowed down input to the site since the last post here. The lull has provided a little time for some research into photobooths. The logic behind this is that you might well find a little portrait in the family photos not much bigger than a postage stamp and wonder how on earth to date it. Well it could have come from a photobooth – if so when did these start to appear in Cambridgeshire. Actually you could contribute greatly to this by giving us your memories of photobooths in Cambridgeshire.

A related topic is the stickyback photo – and here we have added new material which seems to date these firmly from 1901, several years earlier than had previously been thought.

Finally – a new mystery photo shot beside the road to Cambridge 1951 – but can you tell us which road?
