Paramount Diner Interior – NJ

Another old photo from my collection. This came from a lot of photos from a postcard company. It has the file number on the print, and on the back, but no location, name or caption. ¬†There’s Taylor pork roll on the menu board, so a New Jersey location is a safe bet.¬† photo Image13-Copy-Copy.jpg

The 11th Street Diner – Miami Beach, Florida

This shot comes from my friend Luke Ryalls, who is down south on a trip with Dalhousie University architecture.
The 11th St. Diner is a 1948 Paramount, moved from Wilkes Barre, PA in 1992.

The Rainbow Diner- Chester, PA

Mike Engle just found the 1957 newspaper page for this Paramount and sent me the tip on it.

I just checked google street view and sure enough it’s still there. Remodeled, yes, but still (barely) recognizable. It doesn’t seem to be in any of the diner finding guides or books, so I suppose this is a new find. I would love to see the interior. Anyone in the Chester area want to go check this one out?
