I asked about these once before but got little info.

One of George's books has some pics of these. Search the board for "hatbox" and you find it.

It's a "hatbox" machine, made by various companies and named that because it looked like an antique hat box...

Thank you. I love these novelty photographs. I think the camera box ones are still my favorite.
