This is the longest ORIGINALLY operated McDonalds in the world! This is in my hometown in Downey, Ca where I grew up as a kid. It’s still there! I don’t eat fast food at all, but I thought this was cool that it’s still resides there. I would have spent more time on a better photograph, but it was getting late, I had my daughter and too many cars in the parking lot to maneuver around.
The 1953 McDonald’s restaurant at 10207 Lakewood Blvd. (at Florence Ave.) was the third franchised McDonald’s built and is the oldest surviving McDonald’s. It was listed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s 1994 list of the 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.
