//cup of coffee at the Downsview Restaurant in NW Toronto.

Today's image is another shot from my stop at the Downsview diner this week. It was a great little spot for a trip back in time over fries and a burger. Chatting with our waitress, Betty, who is also one of the owners, I learned that they're nearing their 60th anniversary in business.

"Wow, congratulations... and this is all still original, huh?" I asked while looking around at the vintage appliances and decor.

"All original. Even the waitress is original!" she replied with a grin, as the regulars burst into laughter.

EXHIBIT: 22 large resin-coated and very retro pieces are now on exhibit at Terence Robert Gallery (531 Sussex Dr) in Ottawa, ON. Pass on the word to any photography-loving Ottawans.

SALE: The Doublecrossed Holiday sale is back -- 25% off everything in my Etsy store + FREE shipping/delivery in Toronto. Shipping elsewhere? Still FREE if you spend $50 or more.
