I'm no expert on car id's, but that beige 2-tone station wagon looks like a 1953 Ford.

Grove Diner

Kodachrome by Joseph Morsello
68th and Ognotz Avenue   -   Philadelphia, PA
One of Philadelphia's Favorite Diners serving 10,000 patrons weekly 
with excellent food from a modern kitchen.  Open 24 hours daily.  Ample Parking Space. 
Our other Diner, 8705 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, Penna.

According to Diners of Pennsylvania this particular diner model was a 1948 Paramount.
Checking a street view on Google maps I see the brown brick building in the background is still standing, but the corner is now home to a Mini Mart.

Fulton Diner Restaurant

Fulton St.   -   Farmingdale, Long Island
Tel. 1139
Cocktail Bar - Accommodations for 10 to 250 People

The Bomb-A-Dear illustration tells me this is a World War II era matchbook. The only other thing I know about this place is that in June 1945 they were advertising four complete sets of pool tables for sale. They may have been upgrading their tables, or getting out of the pool table business, or just getting out of business altogether.
