I believe the diner had a small elevator(dummy waiter) that went down to the bar that was down below on water street called the Rathskeller?,something like that.

It was the place to go after the bars closed in the late 60's early 70's.

My aunt and uncle owned it then.

I love that photo MK ... saved it. You can even see my Old neighbor's shoe repair store on the left.

Maybe not, if I remember correctly, his shop was two more doors towards Mynderse Street. (I think)

Someone should start a thread with photos from days gone by, it would be interesting to see how things have changed.

I can picture exactly where that diner was now. Excellent location too! The small park is Elizabeth Cady Stanton Park. Named for a great person, but is really just a small strip of grass with some stairs leading down the hill to People's Park. I always thought that one belonged in Beijing.

I just noticed there is a sign hanging on the corner of the Hotel at the 2nd and 3rd floor level. It would be cool if the new owners tried to duplicate it with the new Hotel Clarence .

I was wondering the same thing. At first I thought it was one of those old scales like the one that used to be inside the front doors of Rexall that used to be down the street. I think it was Shumway's. However after looking at it, I think it is too big to be that. BTW, what was in the building next to the diner?

I'm fairly sure it's an oldtime Pepsi machine.

I never thought of that. Now that you mention it, it does look like it is.

Here we go again. I worked in the Homested in the early 50's when Chick & Waren owned it.This was before it was Kilmers. I started as a dish washer and was made a short order worker when the former one was fired. Started at 9pm till 7am 6 days a week. The 2 big coffee erns by the back kitchen doors were always on and one was always ready for backup, and the gas toaster which as long as you put in bread it would kick out toast
Remember the dumb waiter well as we used it to send coffee down to Freddie and he would send up a little livation for us. How about the bathrooms downstairs, either through the kitchen and office or on the stairway from the west door of the diner? Stairway was between the diner and the cigar shop-poolhall and was closed in. You could also take it down to the Rathcellar.Have a lot more stories of this place but don't want to bore you.

Had alot of quickies there! \:\)
(FLMods this is not a dirty reference,
a quickie was a hamburger or cheese burger
with french fries and gravy over the whole thing)
