Edward_Hopper-Nighthawks-1942

The iconic Edward Hopper painting. Diners like this were common in New York as I was growing up. I’ve mentioned them before, but every now and then I’ll see something on the Internet that fans the fires of nostalgia once again.

I love old photos like this – they help me connect to a world that was; so very close and yet otherwise untouchable.
