Here's the marquee for one of the first McDonald's ever built. It's always great to see one of the original arches still intact, with a healthy looking Speedee.

A vintage place to eat is Wympee's in Dayton, Oh. This eatery is located on the same block as White Tower.


UPDATE 09/13 : Here are a couple of recent photos of Wympee. Unlike the White Tower across the street that is now a White Lotus, Wympee's exterior is largely unchanged over the past decade. Many thanks to Richards Weiss for update. 09-13
