A friend of mine sent me some updated photos of this 1952 O’Mahony a couple of weeks ago.
I visited several years ago when it was between operations.
This is the bit of the diner that confuses the hell out of me. It has cream porcelain enamel panels for a section (about four windows wide on an old car) of the interior to the left of the kitchen door with baked in deco graphics. Quite out of place for a ’50s O’Mahony. Perfect in a ’30s O’Mahony. The counter on the left side had been removed at some point. I would almost think this was part of an older car from the location that they’d turned sideways to use as a kitchen, but the kitchen seems to be entirely the wrong shape for that. Anyone have better pics of that detail or any info about it?
