and i'm steve ember. this week, sit down and enjoy an american tradition -- the diner.

(music)

voice one:

a diner is a small restaurant. old-time diners were built in a factory and transported to their place of business.

diners usually have an open kitchen and a long counter. people can sit at the counter and watch the cooks make their food.

a diner can be a place for people in a community to gather, drink coffee and talk. or it can be a welcome stop for travelers on the road.

(music)

voice two:

around the late eighteen fifties, there was a young man in providence, rhode island, named walter scott. in fact, the american diner museum says he was just seventeen. walter scott discovered a way to make extra money. he brought food to men who worked late at night in the city.

walter scott
