ID these Little Taverns

I found these today in a box of other prints at an antique shop in Havre de Grace, Maryland. From the residue on the one print, it looks like they were originally from a sign company, mocking up billboards. It’s at the same time unfortunate, and extremely exciting to me that despite years of research, both archival and out on the road, these two locations are both unfamiliar to me.

There’s just enough context in them that it seems like one of you out there will be able to ID them.

The sign on the building to the left reads, “Joker’s Inn”, and it looks like the building to the left of that is a cleaners. The quality of the picture is just iffy enough that I can’t make out the street sign. It looks like a numbered street, though. The shot’s late 1960s.

EDIT: This Little Tavern has been ID’ed as Washington No. 26, Good Hope Road.

Another one, also late ’60s, with a partial LT. With the bridge¬†and the stacks, I would think this one would be easier to ID.

Frank’s Diner at night

Frank’s Diner is a Kullman Princess, originally from Carney’s Point, New Jersey, where it was known as the Olympia Diner. It’s original foundation and kitchen are still there as of last I checked. Frank’s is located in Jessup, Maryland and as you can see, looks great.
