Classic Cafes: Caff Cavalcade #17

Enclaves of the '50s & 60s: Fantasy in Vitrolite


A feast of Vitrolite n' Formica detailing. First off, the lovely old deco mirror which sat at the back of the Regent Snack Bar ex Edgware Road. Next, Vitrolite ceiling detail from what is now a bog standard chippy on Whitecross St near the Barbican (but which used to be a grand old eaterie.) Finally, one of the neon lights from the ceiling of the Regent Snack Bar.
