Oldest McDonald's, Downey

This McDonald's at the intersection of Lakewood and Florence Blvds. in the City of Downey is the oldest restaurant in the chain of over 30,000 worldwide. Originally built in 1953, it survived threats of demolition and now has an adjacent McDonald's museum. Also shown in the dual-image is the top part of the 60-foot-high "Speedee the Chef" sign at the corner of the property.
