Original was a converted trolley, installed here at least as early as 1942, which was replaced in 1952 with this Silk City, which had previously been the original Laurel Diner. (Which was itself replaced with the equally rare 1951 Comec now serving as the Tastee Diner there, and had also replaced a converted trolley.) (Thanks to Spencer Stewart.) State was later known as Bourbon House BBQ, and is now a used car dealership. Expanded and completely bricked in, but still has recognisable diner features on the street-facing side.
