Speedee repairs

McDonald's Mr Speedee

According to Wikipedia, McDonald's "introduction of the 'Speedee Service System' in 1948 established the principles of the modern fast-food restaurant." This Speedee at the oldest surviving McDonald's must be nearly 60 years old now, and apparently is in need of some minor repair work.

This McDonald's location was listed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation's 1994 list of the 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. See Speedee McDonald's for more pictures from a previous Downey Daily post.
