where in a silk city diner is this’tag” situated?
The tag with the serial number is usually located over the front door. Supplementary tags can also sometimes be found in the center of the backbar. In a lot of cases though, the tags have been removed, either when the diner sits vacant for a while, as it’s an easy part to pop off, or when the place changes hands and the owner wants part of the diner to remember it by.
I’m from Paterson, NJ , the first industrial city in the USA. This was interesting to see.
