I Miss the Old Days

What became of America's Drive-Thru Fotomat?   A bright and compact little kiosk easily recognisable by its pyramid-shaped gold-coloured roof, usually positioned in a large parking lot outside a strip mall, at its peak in the early 80s, there were over 4,000 Fotomats throughout North America.

Nothing new, huh?
