The 54 Diner- Buena NJ

374 Blue Anchor Rd. Buena, NJ

Looking at this one on GoogleMaps, there’s a sign that says “State Property No Trespassing” in the front parking lot now. Does any one know what’s going on with the 54 diner?

Thanks to Mike Engle and Beth Lennon- the 54 is still up and running!

The diner is Mountain View no. 425, from 1954, hence the name.

Matchbook from the Mahony Company

Mahony Diners

I recently bought this matchbook from the estate of John L. Cronk.
Mahony was a short lived diner company, formed from the remains of O’Mahony.

This matchbook’s interesting in that it advertises not only the Mahony diner company and their Mahony Diner – Motel Center, but also the diner trade journal, Fountain Luncheonette and diner magazine of Rahway, NJ. The inside of the matchbook discusses the virtues of matchbooks as a form of diner advertising.
My other Mahony ephemera.

Unfortunately, other than its short lifespan and its relation to O’Mahony, I can’t seem to find all that much on the company. I’d love to know more.
