Today we travel to Andy’s Drive-In located in Sacramento, California, at 2995 Freeport Boulevard. The promotional photo was taken in 1941, and was evidently staged as all of the carhop’s are carrying glasses of water, and some of the cars with only a driver have trays on the right-hand side.
It was probably just a coincidence unless Sacramento was a General Motors town that many of the cars other than the 1940 Ford convertible appear to be built by GM. Apparently, the newest car in the image is a well-optioned 1941 Cadillac sedanette on the right with two carhops next to it. The building has not survived, but a McDonalds, another fast food restaurant is located on the site today.
Tell us what you find of interest in this photograph courtesy of the Sacramento Public Library.
