Mel's Diner

This photograph was taken in front of Mel's Diner in Hollywood, CA. Since the 1950's, these types of old diner's have been representative of America. I feel diner's help bring the community together with homemade, traditional American food. Not to mention the style and quality of the neon sign has become symbolic of America.
