Thanks to Ron Dylewski of The American Roadside http://www.theamericanroadside.com/ for mentioning this blog. We may be doing some cross-overs in the near future. You may also see this blog mentioned in Roadsideonline http://www.roadsideonline.com/index.php coming up as well as Roadsidefans yahoo groups http://groups.yahoo.com/group/roadsidefans/ too! We visited Don’s Diner in Plainville, MA as I stated I would the other day. It was a nice morning drive and I got to photograph the old gas station down the street from the diner near the Plainville/Attleboro town line on Rte. 1A. This place is a one of a kind octagonal building that has not sold gasoline for a while but is still owned by a local oil company. I will upload a photo soon. Had a very filling breakfast at Don’s although none of the Perreault family were in attendance. We strolled around the Wrentham Village Premium Outlet Mall just to check it out, it is huge!!! There wasn’t much open at 8:00 am except the restaurants attached to the complex. I noticed driving back up Rte. 1A the former Karol’s, an old roadside bar (in Walpole near the Norwood line) that had been closed for years reopened as some sort of restaurant. But more importantly the old Krueger Ale neon sign that used to hang off the building was gone. I’m glad I photographed that a few years ago!
