Johnny's Restaurant 1938

Just Another Good Place To Eat.  and 24 hour curb service in 1938. 

It is often forgotten what a hopping place Delmar was when RT13 ran through it and there was a number of 24 hour restaurants and gas stations on Bi-State Blvd plus down town 24 hour restaurants for the trains stopping in Delmar.

John R Wingate Jr died in 1974.  He was the son of John R Wingate Sr and Clara Wingate.  His wife was Dorothy Wingate and they had two children; Patricia and Suzanne.  He ran the Bon Ton restaurant in Laurel after Johhny's faded away.  He had worked for Thompson restaurant in Delmar.  His father was a railroad conductor.
