The First

This Holga camera shot is of the first McDonald's, located in Des Plains, IL. OK, if you're being techincal about it, it isn't the first. It's the first once it became a franchise. It's also not the original building, which was torn down. This is a recreation of the first franchised McDonald's, built in the same location as the original building. It's supposed to be open for tours, but I've been by it a couple of times, and have never seen it open. A real working McDonald's is directly across the street.
As I write this, I'm wondering why I know so much about McDonald's. I never eat there.
