The Delmar Diner

Above photo is of The Delmar Diner.  The Diner has had a number of names and a number of renovations over it's 62 years of existence. 

About 1958 Ed Wainwright purchased Vern's Drive-in. This was the original restaurant. Vern's had been built by Vernon Livington in 1956.  He contracted out the actual running of the restaurant to another company.  That company ran up unpaid bills and by 1958 the restaurant was sold.

Above Ad from 1963.  The restaurant became part of the State line Motel complex at the corner of State street and RT13. The name was changed to The State Line Restaurant.  The restaurant was managed by a number of people.  

above ad from 1968, In the 1960s and 1970s it became Orrell's Surrey Restaurant run by Jim and Ann Orrell.

In the 1980s and 1990s The Restaurant was The Piper Family Inn and Duckblind Restaurant.  Also just called Pipers Family Inn  or Piper's Restaurant.  It was run by Alexander J. Bubas.

I could not find an ad for The Eagle Diner but in 1998 Piper's became The Eagle Diner with new management and run by Osman Arziman. .  In 2001 it was the Seagull Restaurant run by Rose and Osman Arziman.  In 2002 it became the Delmar Diner also run by Matt Ceylan.
