Here' an interesting sign and diner located in Providence, Rhode Island.

It's difficult for hungry eaters to miss the "seaplane" hanging off the top of the roof of the appropriately named Seaplane Diner. 07-11

I came across this diner called O'Rourke's in the town of Middletown, Connecticut. It probably looks the same as it did in the late 1940s. I can not comment any further as it was closed when I was there. I could not even look inside but what is known is that on the outside it is every inch a classic diner although the glass block wall is probably not an as-built feature.

Many thanks to Richard Weiss for photo and info. 08-13

More information about the O'Rourke's Diner including menu can be found at the O'Rourke's Diner's website


The O'Rourke's was also featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
