FOUND by Elizabeth in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
I found this photo in a book I bought at an estate sale in my neighborhood. After finding the picture, I went back to the sale to see if there were any others shots like this, but there were only the usual family photos. All I could find out about the family was that they were Greek/American. I’ve often wondered if they ran a Greek diner in a black neighborhood when they first moved to the U.S. I’ve also wondered why the picture was put away in the book. But mostly I’ve wondered about what it was like for the men on both sides of the clear dividing line of that counter.
