|fake Worcester diner
This former Worcester diner was built in the 1920s. In recent years, it housed a barber shop. It appears to be used as a residence now.
This fake Worcester diner was built around 1990 as Grumpy's, a take-out restaurant. Later, it was known as the Clam Shack and, after that, Bob's Deli. When this photo was taken in 2011, it was about to reopen as an ice cream stand.
|Trolley Pizzaria is not a real diner but I'll include it here anyway. "Real" diners were prefabricated and never used as train dining cars or trolleys. They were shipped from the diner manufacturer in one piece and installed at their locations. The Trolley Pizzaria was built in Salisbury, MA in the late 1940s to look like a Sterling Streamliner diner. Some of the equipment and stools were purchased from Worcester, a diner manufacturer. The faux diner operated originally as Evans' Streamliner. In 1956, it was moved to Lowell where it operated as "Bryer's Streamliner". Around 1981 when it was known as the Gorham Street Diner, the building was remodeled to look like a trolley car. It became the Trolley Pizzaria at that time. For more, see this website.|
