Episode Description:

You’re working 2nd shift. You’re starving and it’s the early 1870’s, where do you go to get a cup of hot “Joe”, or a slice of apple pie or a Pulled Pork Sandwich? Well, in most towns you’d be out of luck, but if you were in Providence, RI in 1872, Walter Scott would be serving a piping hot cup of coffee, pulled pork sandwich and a slice of the best homemade apple pie. It became so lucrative for Scott, that he quit his job at the Providence Journal as a typesetter and began running several horse-drawn wagons around Providence dishing out great food to all the 2nd shift workers and other “nite owls”. So join us as Along the Blackstone Episode #20 explores how an “American Original” was created and what it meant to the working guy – the creation of the American Diner.
