The ‘63 Diner on the north side of Columbia just recently went out of business. You certainly couldn’t tell just by looking in the windows. Everything is left in place as if they just are all on a smoke break. The lights outside are still flashing bright and the props inside are still eerily frightening representations of Elvis Presley and Betty Boop.

It reminds me of a time when things were simpler, of a time that I never lived in. Some how the 1960’s have made such a solid impression through Hollywood and diners such as these, that people in my generation are still able to identify with them. Truly timeless, Iconic Americana if ever I’ve seen it.
