The Kendall Tourist Camp and Diner

Located a mile and a half west of Silver Creek, New York on rt. 20, the Kendall Diner was an early production Ward and Dickinson, complete with wheels, dating from the mid 1920s. The complex was originally known as the Kendall “King Bee” Tourist Camp. The diner was originally run by Fannie E. Dye. Ray A. Damon ran the complex from 1927 through until at least the late 1940s. By the third postcard in this series (postmarked 1931), the diner had been expanded, with an addition to the right hand side. The original position of the monitor roof is still visible. The diner was replaced in 1932 with a rare, large Ward and Dickinson, serial no. 244 (thanks Mike Engle!)
