Food for the Whole Family: Picturing Hot Shoppes

Places

While the original Hot Shoppe located at 3128 14th Street, NW Washinton, D.C. was a simple nine-stool lunch counter which shared its address with a bakery, most later Hot Shoppes locations were stand-alone buildings with elaborate cafeterias, dining rooms, kitchens, lobbies, and in some cases, small stores selling candy, gum, cigars, cigarettes, pottery, toys and other novelties.

This exhibit features images of Hot Shoppes facilities.  They include restaurants and administrative buildings. There interior as well as exterior photographs. There are also several aerial photographs of Hot Shoppes locations.
