Since 1944

I love this sign for the Avenue Diner which has been in this spot at Davenport Rd & Avenue Rd since 1944. It lights up at night. Inside it is a cool retro diner that takes you back many decades until you look out the window and see all of the new condo buildings that are taking over the area.

I like the idea of an retro oasis, with food!

Wow, that is a long time, and it makes me wonder kept in the same family? Either way it's very cool.
