The Trolley Diner – home of the Willie Whopper

A new addition to the vintage diner photo collection, the Trolley Diner. Unfortunately, I don’t know where this one was located. I bought the photo from a dealer in Maryland, where Trolley conversions were common, but vintage photos have a tendency to travel, so I can’t use that to place the image.  It’s interesting to note that in addition to seating inside the converted trolley, this one offered curb service with an outdoor menu featuring the “Willie Whopper” double decker hamburger. They also served beer. It looks like people had some particularly leaky cars in this parking lot.
