I bought this little photo, in its Art Nouveau style paper frame, as it was listed as a photobooth photo – photobooth items being my main collecting passion. The mount really appealed to me despite its poor condition. Rather than a booth photo it is a small studio photograph that has been trimmed to fit the frame. The sitter is identified on the back simply as Hilda.
The frame will sit upright by itself, when the side flaps are folded back. When folded out, the shape and style resembles a wee rocketship that one might have found in a Georges Méliès film. The frame measures 85 x 60 mm
