Came across this blog post today while checking in on Google+. It is a detailed history of Fotomat, which started in 1965 and only closed completely in 2009. To be honest I didn’t realize it lasted that long!
I used Fotomat services in the 1980s, dropping off at my local kiosk in Shoreline WA. I still have a few packs of negatives in Fotomat containers today. Even some Kodachrome slides which were sent out for develop and mount. In my neck of the woods, many of the remaining kiosks were repurposed as espresso stands.
