This was another drive-by photo op. Too full for a real stop. The Glider was built by Mountain View and has their signature “cow catcher” corners.
Some more from the archives, in no particular order.
Short Stop Diner, now Irene’s pupusas. Wheaton, MD
It’s a 1956 Kullman. The neon was nearly as big as the diner itself, but has since disappeared.
Diner- Front Royal, VA
It’s a 1956 Mountain View. Front Royal used to be a hotbed of diners. It had this one, Nick’s Good Food diner, the Do-nut dinette, and another ’50s stainless model. The other three have been knocked down, and this one’s now a used car dealer.
Frost Diner- Warrenton, VA
The Frost is a 1955 O’Mahony.
Tastee Diner- Silver Spring, MD
Tastee Diner- Laurel, MD
a rare Comac brand diner
Bud’s Broiler – New Orleans, LA
Summit Diner– Somerset, PA
Moody’s Diner- Waldoboro, ME
I stopped here this morning for coffee, a bagel and a side of scrapple, something I haven’t had access to up at school.
The neptune was built by Mountain View in 1951, and is serial number 296. It used to be known as the DeLuxe Diner.
