Famous Photo Booth Explosions #1
We're starting a new series here at the blog about the most famous photo booth explosions in history, and we're doing this for two reasons. One: everyone loves a good explosion. Two: not everyone likes to be in a good explosion so we want to lend some advice on photo booth safety as we know it can get fairly dangerous. In this first post we want to bring you a story that i'm sure you've been told before but may be nervous to recount. That's right, it's The Photo Booth Explosion of the Bulge. During the battle of the bulge between December 1944 and January 1945 there was a photo booth setup in the trenches for US troops to improve morale. The booth had been up and running for about two weeks when a German bomb took it out in an air raid. There 67 US troops in the booth at the time of the explosion, sad to say, none of them survived. This was one of the darkest days in history. The remnants of the booth still lay on the beach in Normandy.
