REMEMBER THOSE TINY BUILDINGS IN THE PARKING LOT OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD SHOPPING CENTER - FOTOMAT STORES?

FOTOMAT USED TO BE THE PLACE TO GET YOUR PICTURES DEVELOPED.

THAT WAS BEFORE EVERY DRUGSTORE GOT INTO THE INSTANT PICTURE DEVELOPING BUSINESS.

THAT WAS ALSO BEFORE THE DEVELOPMENT OF DIGITAL CAMERAS.

WHATEVER BECAME OF THE TINY BUILDINGS?

MOST WERE TORN DOWN.

THERE WASN'T A BIG NEED FOR 50 S. F. BUILDINGS, BUT SOME DID SURVIVE.




VERY GOOD QUESTION:
WHAT DID THEY DO OUT THERE IN THE PARKING LOT?

PARKING LOT VERSION OF THE "MILE HIGH CLUB?"

FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT, A COUPLE OF PHOTOS OF SURVIVING FOTOMAT BUILDINGS.
