Scenes from the last day at the Miss Albany

last day at Miss Albany

A full house on the last day.

As you well know, the Miss Albany Diner closed last Friday. Photographer Julia Zave was there to document the final day of the local institution. And she was nice enough to share a handful of her photos with us. They're in large format after the jump.

A few of Julia's photos accompanied an article in Metroland this week by Amy Halloran about the closing of the diner. You should check it out -- Amy talked with owners Jane Brown and her son Bill about what they're planning to do next (one of those things: a Miss Albany cookbook).

By the way: You might know Julia from her concert photography. She also recently started doing lifestyle photography for clients.

The photos are in large format above -- scroll all the way up.

Are we still talking about the diner? Hasn't this been covered extensively? This seems more like an advertisement for a photographer...
