Ellen's Eats

When I lived in NYC, I passed by Ellen's Stardust Diner countless times, but never had a chance to stop in.

Even more interesting than the diner itself, was the fact that Ellen Hart was a former Miss Subways. This was a beauty contest held on the NYC subway from the 1940's to the 1970's. Scroll down the page to see a bunch of the former candidates.

Here's how it looked in the subway.

I wonder what the prize was. Probably something really girly, like a free perm or a handbag.
