Oh boy....if only the walls could talk. What stories this little diner could tell us.

My Tuesday Photo Do hope you can find time to visit with me.

One would not know they serve anything. IT looks like an abandoned railroad car.
My Ruby Link for you

We need to clarify. The Midway diner has not operated as a diner since sometime in the 1960's. Sadly, in its present carnation, the rail car is a storage shed. Jim Schlosser does a nice job of documenting its chronology of purposes from 1) glorious rail car to 2) swanky diner to 3) bustling flea market to 4) deteriorating storage shed.

If this photo had sound, you would hear a barking dog and cars wooshing by. Put your memory cap on and you can almost hear the jukebox.... It's Elvis!!! I ain't nothin' but a hound dog.........

It could be a pleasant place...

WOW! What a piece of history! Too bad it has been left uncared for, and now is a storage shed!!

Aubrey, as I am learning through the city daily photo blogs, most cities have decaying treasures. Globally, more interest is being taken in history and artifacts but restoration and maintenance can only take place with money-- and personpower!

You are right. This could be "old Florida." I've seen these diners here and there...and like this, one, not functional. Which is too bad. Nice shot!

It has seen better days, but it still has a lot of charm! Thanks for sharing the history of this diner!

EG Wow

Too bad it's no longer in use. It looks charming!

That looks like the joint where Clint Eastwood and Hilary Swank ate pie in the movie "Million Dollar Baby".

Elvis also ate at the Brightwood a couple of miles on down the road.
