Diner- Front Royal, VA
It’s a 1956 Mountain View. Front Royal used to be a hotbed of diners. It had this one, Nick’s Good Food diner, the Do-nut dinette, and another ’50s stainless model. The other three have been knocked down, and this one’s now a used car dealer.

  1. I am catching up on your blog- neat stuff! and curious to know where the photos from your archive came from, or who took them. I like how you’ve juxtaposed some of them with the modern views. Keep up the good work!

  2. Hey there!
    The old photos were taken by my father, Michael Stewart, who was into diners and roadside Americana long before I was born. There are more diner photos in his collection, but he shot everything on slides, up until he switched to digital, so sifting through thirty five years and thousands upon thousands of photos takes some time. I’ll post more as I find him.

    He’s a professional photographer, and has two websites:

    Glad you like it! If you have any questions or comments about the individual photos or places, comment away.

  3. actually one comment I can make is that last slide that says Diner MA looks very much to me like the Bel Aire diner on Route 1 in Peabody MA. Last time I was around there, within the past year, the diner was still there but had been closed for a while. I used to go there quite often when I lived in MA and was saddened to see it close.

  4. hello! I’m about to shoot a music video on MD, DC, VA area, and we are on the need of a very classic american diner restaurant.. Any ideas? How can I get it touch with dinerman?
