Built in 1940s in New Jersey, USA, this original American Diner made its way to Spitalfileds Market in late 1980s, and was finally moved to Trinity Buoy Wharf in 2003.
The following is an excerpt from Larry Cultrera's "Diner Hotline" blog, describing the Diner's journey. Click the button below to read the full feature:
"This was the former Georgetown Diner then operating as Randy’s Roast Beef in downtown Georgetown, Mass. It was the next to last diner built by the Worcester Lunch Car Company (No. 849) Only a few miles down Rte. 133 from the wildly popular Agawam Diner in neighboring Rowley. (...) In 1989, John Keith was buying up old diners and was doing some restoration work and reselling them, basically becoming a diner broker. He bought the Georgetown Diner and moved it to New Hampshire for some restoration. (...)
After restoring the diner, Keith moved it out to Los Angeles to try to sell it out there (...) and eventually sold it to Trevor Gulliver in London, England to be part of his Fat Boy’s Diner chain. (...) The Fat Boy’s Diner chain lasted a couple of years, maybe 3 and then was sold off. Ironically the last diner operating as Fat Boy’s in London is the former Georgetown Diner." Larry Cultrera
