From a discussion board of Baltimore locals: "The photographer is standing in the middle of Eastern Avenue looking north up Grundy. The business on the left would later become the White Coffee Pot and the buildings out of the frame on the right would be torn down for Goldenberg’s. The two unit streetcar is the 26 about to turn left on its way to Sparrows Point, and the bus is on the #10 loop, although displaying the Paterson Park route scroll."

Buffalo Lunch

The Google finds plenty of references TO a "Buffalo Lunch", but not a definition of WHAT it is. Hopefully somebody in ShorpyLand can provide a definition?

[Older references seem to indicate it meant cafeteria or buffet-style service. -tterrace]

Thanks, one of those rabbit-holes Shorpy often presents that I dive into and can't find an answer.
