Vintage Photos of Diners Through the Years
Redbook 2hrs ago
Diners are a staple in the United States that maintain a vintage feel no matter how updated they may appear to be. It's the perfect spot to grab a greasy burger, a basket of hot fries, or a plate of eggs and pancakes no matter what time of day. Many people grew up going to diners for a quick meal, and while they aren't quite as popular now as they once were, they likely won't be disappearing anytime soon. In fact, diners have been an American favorite since 1924, when they evolved from rolling restaurants and dining cars into what we know them as now: a good ole' diner. These eateries really hit their heyday in the 1950s and 1960s, when they became the go-to "cool" hangout spot for teenagers and adults alike. Diners were known as places where you could get delicious and (more importantly) inexpensive food, which gave them a more laid-back feel that customers appreciated and loved. Although they've changed a bit through the years, the diner look you're used to seeing still feels plucked from the past. Here's a look at photos of vintage diners that may just inspire you to order from your own favorite spot.
