Here’s another one of the Maryland Diners. It’s changed a bit since it was built. Take a look at the postcard and take a look at what it looks like now.
Here’s how it looked when it was new, probably late 1930s. The tag is gone, it was probably removed or covered over when renovations were done in the 1950s. It was called the New bridge diner then. I like the awnings. A nice touch of class.
Here is is now. The original lettering reading, “Bridge Diner” is still present, though not visible in this shot because of the cars. There are holes drilled in the enamel on the left hand side, where the lettering reading “new” was originally bolted on. As you can see, the windows were redone at some point, removing the top part. A vestibule and roof were added as well, completely changing the look of the place
A shot showing the old mural painted on the ceiling. There is one on both end, both with similar scenes. This also shows the ’50s renovation, with boomerang formica replacing the dark wood window surrounds, a stainless bump out for lighting fixtures, and the end door delete.
The bridge diner is located at 801 Pulaski Hwy, Havre De Grace, MD
Spencer, this is one diner I have passed by more than once over the years on the way north. I actually ate there in 1987, but I never took a photo of it unfortunately.
Looks like the bridge has been unfortunately remodeled within the last year.
