A few Friday Flashbacks ago I posted a postcard from the block across from the 1908 library, on the Post Road.
A 2nd photo showed the Club Grill, a popular 1940s-’50s restaurant at the corner of Taylor Place and the Post Road. Owners included the Gault and Papageorge families (the latter of Oscar’s fame).
At some point the Club Grill became Muriel’s Trolley Diner. It looked like one of the trolley cars that stopped right outside its front door.
In the photo above you see the library building in the background, across the Post Road, and the Klaff’s store that (with Muriel’s) burned in November of 1974.
But here’s something I never noticed: “Trolley” is misspelled as “Trolly” on the side of the diner.
