Bob’s Big Boy drive-in restaurant, Burbank, California, 1940 |
Here we have Bob's Big Boy drive-in restaurant in Burbank in 1940. Bob’s is still there but it doesn’t look like this, and it certainly doesn’t have wait staff running around in cowboy boots. Oh boy, the feet of those poor girls must have been killing them at the end of a shift. Look at the signage behind them: “THIN PAN CAKES” – I've never noticed that we used to spell “pancakes” as two separate words.
