    American Diner Swadlincote

    Hi,
    A few pics of a reunion held at the American Diner.
    Some American's came over to have lunch at the diner today, they used to go
    there in the late fifties when it was Murphy's Diner, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
    We picked them up from the station & ferried them to the diner for lunch followed by interview's for the BBC & local tv.

















    A few stories were told about their time in the diner during the fifties.
    They gave Jeff the owner an original menu & also a framed bill from 1957 which they conveniently forgot to pay at the time.
    They settled up the old bill plus interest.
    Hope you enjoyed
    Dean
