All you can eat Diner, part 2

Here is a photo of the aforementioned Jopil Bros Parlor Diner.  A poor photo which is typical of newspaper that has been turned to microfilm.  One thing I find fascinating is the roof.  It looks like a metal roof.   And hopefully it is just the photo, but the front of the diner looks like it is leaning.  
  From research, it seems there was a Fred's Diner at this location for some years, and just before this diner came here, Fred's was put into storage and would get badly charred in less than a month, while in storage.

1931 - Yonkers - all you can eat

Fascinating article. Getting back into doing a little research that needs to be done before Christmas.  Ten Percent of the customers were women, and they ate salads.   This article is from the Yonkers Statesman, July 24, 1931.
