A forerunner of the 20th century diner, lunch wagons were used in the 1800s to deliver meals to the public in American cities. These enclosed wagons had a kitchen in the rear which was separated from the dining area by a window to pass food out to customers on the street. Another window was situated on one side so patrons could drive up and place an order from their carriage. During cold, stormy months, these popular eateries were packed with customers. In the summer, however, people preferred to eat outdoors.
