the works

This railroad-car diner in Northhampton, Massachusetts
claimed to be open
and there was a bicycle parked outside
but it looked like a place
where only ghosts go to eat.

Lovely picture! I like the "Don't blame me. I bank locally." sticker in the right window.

Like you said, something's not right...but what? It certainly is colorful...yet kinda old, dingy and dirty...

Why the reference to ghosts? Am I missing something?

Have a great day!

OPEN signs on restaurants? Ha! Not a good sign in my eyes. They should 'sell' themselves with GREAT food. But I like this shot, colorful.

The American concept of "diner" does not exist in Australia. We have cafes ... but I guess you have them too. We don't have bars either ... we have pubs.

I wonder why the owners of the diner in your photo needed three open signs. Did they think that people would not believe one or two?

When I approach a place to eat, I would rather be able to see through the window than see a bunch of signs, so I can tell whether I want to go inside to eat (which is a decision usually made for me because the operative question is usually whether Julie wants to go inside to eat).

I agree with Jacob that the place must be kind of dingy inside. I don't think I would eat there, but would to explore for historical reasons.

Love the reds in this shot. Looks like it would be a fun place to eat...if it's ever really open!

Do I see a light on inside? Very busy with the signage . . . lots of stories here . . . this could be a setting for a movie.
