This lovely vintage postcard is unused.

Holy cow, the building is still there, and it’s still a restaurant according to Google StreetView:



It’s part of a small chain called Norma’s Family Restaurants. According to Yelp! people either really hate or really like Norma’s.

George Comeau passed away at the end of 2012 at age 97. His obituary is here. He married Lucille in 1939 (she passed in 1999). They ran the restaurant ten years.
