Update 6/15/2010 - Still no correct answer.
Here is my first contest for blog readers: Tell me what is the name of the restaurant pictured in this great photo above and where was it located? Submit your answer by email before July 30. A winner will be chosen from all correct answers. Prize: One year membership to the Edina Historical Society and a free book, From Settlement to Suburb: The History of Edina, Minnesota by Paul D. Hesterman.
(Yes, I do know the answer but I'm not telling until after the contest is over.)
UPDATE: And the winner is.... Becky Rose, who correctly entered Hawkins Confectionary, located at the northwest corner of 44th and France.
Many of you guessed Clancy's (or the Shadow Box) which did have stools and a lunch counter. This photo, along with others, was donated several years ago by Dick Hawkins of Morningside.
Thanks to all of you for playing. Watch for other contests on this blog.... stay tuned.
