This photograph shows the exterior of the Diner that we showed the interior of yesterday. From the sign, you can see it is the White Crystal Diner. To me, it is sort of sad how today everything looks the same. Strip mall after strip mall with the same old stores that look the same old way. Back in the day, each store, diner, or shop was a unique expression of the owner's personality, interests, or preferences. Hence, life was interesting, as you would never know what you might find. Today we have Walmart, McDonald's, and Starbucks. I really miss the old system of unique owner operated businesses.
