The Mighty Midget Kitchen

The Mighty Midget in 1980. It was built by a Glendale, California based firm post-war from a section of bomber fuselage. Apparently they built seven of them, and this is the only one to have survived.

From the 1940s through its closing, it cooked standard grill fare- burgers and hot dogs. It did a stint post-move and post-restoration as a Barbecue place, and now is part of a German Doner restaurant.

And 30 years later. It closed in 1994 and was moved to the current site in 1996. The stone gas station which is used to sit next to is now a pie shop.

Reading WWII weekend

The main stop of yesterday was at the Reading Airport/ Mid Atlantic Air Museum for the WWII weekend, coinciding with the 65th anniversary of D-Day. I met up with members of the Fedora Lounge, chatted; had lunch. There was an incredible turnout of reenactors, from all sides of the war. Saw beautiful WWII fighters, bombers and trainers in flight, and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
