I believe I yelled, "Stop the car!" when I saw this building. There was no way that I was going to allow this vintage charmer to escape my camera lens. Don't you just love it?
Now I just need to dig up some history on it. The inside is quintessential 1940s and 1950s, maybe as far back as the 20s or 30s. I don't know. It'd sure help if I had my Mom with me on trips like this because I could ask her when she was growing up if the places were similar.
I know it reminds me of one of the rare Woolworth's lunch counters I glimpsed that amazingly still existed when I was a very little girl in the 1960s. I can still see that counter in my mind's eye to this day.
