Nostalgic Americana History ~ The First McDonald's


So, my daughter (Freckles) and I went out today to hit a few thrift shops in town....We have passed by this old McDonald's building a few times before and decided as we passed by....Why not stop and check it out. Come to find out it was a little run down museum...But the first McDonald's location on the old route 66 here in San Bernardino California.

I am always up for a bit of history in any town I live in...So this was right up our alley. The Museum itself was perhaps a little bit of a disappointment,  but was still fun to look at all the old doo dads and memorabilia, which brought me back to my own childhood memories of going to McDonald's and playing on the old metal hamburgers and the big hamburger guy below.... 
Freckles was a good sport about letting me take a few snapshots of her playing around on the old play place stuff... I love that girl...She can be such a goof. Hey, remember the Fry Kids???? 
I soaked it all up in just 20 minutes...
It was fun...Even though the place was a bit dinky,
it's still a part of some really cool Americana history.
  
It was a good day spent with my girl and we still browsed through
 a couple thrift shops and found a couple little treasures.
 Have a great weekend y'all.
Hope this brings back memories for some of you.
