Intersection "O"St and Eire Ave, Phila, Car lot, Site of former Diner (top right) (Bing Maps)
Been looking for photos of a Diner that used to sit at the intersection of "O" and Eire Avenues in Northeast Philly in the 1960's and 70's next to old Penn Fruit. Nothing but a used car sales lot now.
Finally have proof that my memory at least was correct. I do not or cannot remember if this Diner had a name but in the back of my brain, the name Northeast Diner comes to mind?
4/10/13 - An addition to the story of the "Northeast Diner" and a Philly Sports story about Jack Friel and the '68 North Catholic Varsity Basketball team that took too long to eat breakfast there : http://www.tedsilary.com/jackfriel.htm . .
A snipet of Frankford Arsenal along Tacony Street from Bridge Stree (top left) to Kennedy Street (bottom right), James Street in rear (top right). I have to think that in 1940 when this photo was taken, the U.S. was sending a lot of war aid to Britain. Hence the need to tear down the houses on James Street for daytime parking. Tacony Street Houses torn down around 1960 to make way for I-95 across from Arsenal.
