Bob and Edith’s Diner – Arlington, Virginia

There are two Bob and Edith’s Diners, a very short distance apart. This one is the original, founded in the late 1960s. It’s the real deal, small, cramped, with good food and a real, friendly diner atmosphere. It’s right down the road from an old Ollie’s Trolley

Here they both are, shot during Winter, 2006.

The old short stools in cheerful alternating blue and yellow.

Then there’s the other one, obviously converted fairly recently from something else. Much flashier. More trendy. Bigger. I love the cantilevered structure on the left, sheltering the picnic tables. It’s complete with a large, round neon sign, oddly, inside the building
