“Rusty” McDonnell operated a chain of drive-ins in the Los Angeles area during the 30s and 40s, long before the fast food behemoth McDonalds came on the scene. His restaurants, designed by the revered architect Wayne McAllister, were fabulously kitsch and garish, and customers could spot their huge neon signs from miles away. McDonnell employed a local artist to sketch whimsical interpretations of the carhops or waiters that served cokes, hamburgers, and fries to customers for its menus and this is one of the earlier examples.
