The Booth

The diner,  an iconic American symbol, is traced back to 1872, when Walter Scott started selling food to Providence Journal employees out of horse drawn wagon.  The styling borrows from the dining car of railroads.  In the 1920s, booths became popular for those seeking privacy.  The table has what we need.  Big menus in easy-to-clean plastic coating.  Cream and sugar for our coffee, ketchup for our burgers and fries, tabasco and salt for our eggs.  Comfort.
