Vintage Diner Melamine Tableware by Bob's Your Uncle

There was a diner about an hour from me that I absolutely loved. Not that the food was really that great (I learned the hard way to avoid the Tuna Melt at all cost), but because it hadn't been touched since 1958. It had the same red vinyl booths, the same chipped Formica tables, and the same beat up sign hanging out front with missing bulbs. I think even the same bleach blond waitress was still there from opening day (she was straight out of central casting). It was a left over from a different era and I loved it. So you can imagine my dismay when the last time I took the drive out, and saw it was completely demolished and that a fast food joint was being built on the site. 

Martin and Michele Yeeles over at Bob’s Your Uncle, seem love vintage diners as much as I do.  Through Martin's photography, they have captured some iconic diner images on great line of melamine tableware.
