Some of life’s most fun memories happen in a cramped booth with bright lights flashing in your face. We’re talking about photo booths, the dive bar cornerstone that provides you with tangible evidence of late nights you might otherwise forget.

Portland’s many watering holes are home to these friendly boxes (seriously, how many people can you squeeze in?), each with its own character. Oftentimes, they serve as a guestbook for the establishment itself, papered with black and white portraits of past patrons.

While we wax lyrical, we want to know — what are your favorite spots to snap a selfie the old-fashioned way? Help us chart a road map to the city’s best camera cubicles with your suggestions.
