Color photos metro NYC 1960s The diner is not in color so not part of the NYC photos.Shot in N PA

This is the Red Rose Diner in Towanda PA. Their Facebook page is located at:

https://www.facebook.com/Red-Rose-Diner-503003913116395/

where recent photos show that the 1939 Bell sign is still there. Love how it states over the door: LADIES INVITED.

I come across this picture while looking for some advertising for a project I'm working on.
Notice the Bell Canada sign in the top left corner.

Another kid, this time with a L&LD sign.  It looks like it has a company name at the top

Here is one taken down the street from where I grew up, a 1908 Bell System sign.  Interestingly, they used an AT&T pattern sign, and did not use the N.E.T.T. signage yet.
