This handsome boy is wearing the classic dapper look of the period with a striped tie and white wool cap. He looks mixed too, perhaps with some Asian, or Native American. He reminds me a lot of my brother when he was his age.

Sorry to tell you, this is a studio photo, not from a photobooth. Forgive my candour but as you know it is my thing.

Oh? Is it the background? It is photobooth size so maybe I jumped to the conclusion.

Yes, the background and the lighting. A lot of studios, up until the digital era, offered identity photos at a price competitive to photobooth machines. They were generally of better quality and one could order multiples that were not available once photobooths left the studio setting where they first started.
