Sunday drive: Quakertown

Not retro. Old.

I think Quakertown's on the border between greater Philadelphia and upstate Pennsylvania. On a Sunday, when the downtown is closed and quiet, it gives the impression of being back in time if that's what you're looking for. Went to the Q-Mart, the local (non-Amish?) farmers' market and bazaar. Grandma's fake-'50s luncheonette is a noble entry in the genre; small enough and not a chain so if you toned down the kitsch it could pass for the real thing. Good food and friendly people. The car and restaurant pictures are mine. More things I mean to see upstate: Das Awkscht Fescht in Macungie, the Carlisle classic-car show, and the World War II weekend at the Reading airport.

I didn't get to go in Sine's but it turns out to be what I'd hope for.
