The Welcome Diner

Not too far from our place, on the corner of 10th street and Roosevelt, you will find the Welcome Diner.

Its an old Air Stream-like trailer* with a grill, 9 stools, and plenty of local flavor (no pun intended).

Pictured lower right, is Larry, an overzealous regular whose blaring diatribes can fill up the little aluminum shell to near bursting.

Here is a rare moment of Larry in repose.

Actually known as a "Valentine" this is one of 60-some pre-fab diners produced in the late 50's, early 60's, which once lined the highways of america.
