Linda's Drive-In

Acrylic on canvas 36" X 48"


 

Before fast food chains dominated our towns, mom and pop burger stands played a large role in 1950s American culture. Linda's Drive-In, located on the corner of The El Camino Real and Escuela in Mountain View, was best known for their Parisian Burgers and tater tot fries. The painting takes place in the early sixties during a typical lunch hour. The business lasted until about 1980, when it made way for a Photo Drive-Up.
