1945: The Green Lantern Offers Free Coffee

Apparently DC Comics hero the Green Lantern ran an eat shop serving free coffee in this area in 1945.

Actually, I’m guessing the restaurant was completely unrelated. The Green Lantern didn’t get started until 1940 and I find it unlikely that anyone would name a restaurant after a 5-year-old newbie superhero.

    I believe the Green Lantern restaurant was in Reading and was still open into the 1980s.

    It’s a good name for a restaurant, much better than it is as a name for a superhero.
