A Tiny Worcester Diner. Brattleboro, Vermont

TJ Buckley's Restaurant in a Worcester Diner. Brattleboro. Vermont

Walk up Elliot Street¬†in Brattleboro, Vermont, and you’ll see this absolutely tiny old diner. These days it’s home to TJ Buckley’s, a high-end restaurant that gets pretty amazing reviews.

It was constructed by the Worcester Lunch Car Company (WLC Co.) in the early 1920s and is a great example of a “Worcester Diner.” Based in Worcester, Massachusetts, the WLC Co. specialized in small diners (usually seating 10-70 people, the one here seats about 20). Distinctive features included the porcelain enamel panels you can see here.

Between 1906 and 1957, 651 Worcester Diners were built. They are concentrated in the New England area, but some can be found further afield. This particular one began life in Woburn, Massachusetts and was moved here in the 1950s.
