FOTOMAT, was a once widespread retail chain of photo development
drive-thru kiosks located in shopping center parking lots. Fotomats were
distinctive for their pyramid shaped gold-colored roofs and signs with
red-lettering. They sold Kodak-brand film and other photography related
products and promised one-day photo finishing. They hired young women 

to work in the small buildings and called them "Fotomates." The Fotomate
uniform was a royal blue and yellow smock top. Young men hired were 

called "Fotomacs" and their uniform was a light blue polo shirt.
Chains Closed in the Mid- 80's.

  1. My Mom used to send me there to bring her films for developing. I also bought film from them. I want to say, if my memory serves me right, there was one on Bald Hill Road.
