1948-A_editedCLO-McPlack_editedMcPlack_edited

The first photo is from 1948, when Dick and Mac McDonald remodeled their highly successful barbeque restaurant in San Bernardino, CA into the prototype of the modern era McDonald’s, with a simplified menu, high speed food preparation, and walk-up service. The second photo is during the rededication of the site of that first McDonald’s in the 1990s, then a location for the San Bernardino Civic Light Opera. The dedication plaque at the site, which I wrote, appears in the third photo.
