Duff's Dining Room - Virginia's Finest - One Mile South Winchester, Va., on U.S. 11
Duff's No. 2 - postmarked 1954
These two postcards are postmarked a year apart, and there are a few differences, mainly that the sign has changed. The blurb on the back of the cards is identical except in 1953 its cost was cited as $100,000 and in 1954 it was $115,000. A few punctuation marks were changed, too.
Duff's $100,000.00 [$115,000.00] custom built, stainless steel dining car, is air-conditioned; with a built in luxury dining room. It is the finest in Virginia. Located only 1 mile South of Winchester, on U.S. Highway #11. Duff's is surrounded by many of Virginia's finer motor courts.

I believe this is an earlier view of the diner before awnings were added. Roadside sign has changed and entry to parking area has been enlarged, but utility pole is in same place and trees behind the diner have the same silhouette.
