The Miniature Dioramas of Clifton’s Cafeteria

The Miniature Dioramas of Clifton’s Cafeteria

I love tiny things. I also love Clifton’s (who doesn’t?).

Some of these little dioramas are old, and may very well date to the 1930s. Others appear newer.

Rather than analyze them to death, I will simply share these tiny slices of another world.

Clifton’s Cafeteria truly is a “cabinet of curiosities” and these are my favorites. Do take the time to appreciate these tiny wonders on your next visit.
