Hey #madmen fans, here’s another picture I took at the former #burgerchef in Rialto made famous in last week’s epic episode. The joint was closed so I shot this though the window. Beautifully intact example of a vanished burger chain. Check out pics from last week’s episode to see what I mean. Um, this store should be restored as a Burger Chef! #california #california_igers #igla #igers_la #igersla #inlandempire #caligrammers #oldschool #americana #roadsideamerica #burgers #hamburgers #rialto #socalclassic

I stopped at this former #BurgerChef on #Route66 in Rialto, California last month. As LAist notes, this actual restaurant served as Burger Chef in Sunday’s amazing #MadMen. So cool! Scroll back for more coverage of Sunday’s episode.

On Sunday’s #MadMen, we see a tantalizing reflection in a station wagon window of a vintage sign you can’t pull over for anymore: a glorious sign for the defunct Burger Chef fast-food chain. Later in the episode, we are taken inside the restaurant, but the sign is nowhere in sight. In previous seasons, Mad Men has brought vanished neon back to life, reviving a Howard Johnson’s sign. Google Retrologist and Howard Johnson to read my stories about that episode back in 2012. #burgerchef #signgeeks #neonsigns #americana #roadsideamerica #retrologist #neon

They were the last link to the Don Draper era of commuting. The final four Metro-North commuter railroad bar cars will make their last call on Friday. The cars date to 1973  — check out the funky decor in these shots I took in 2007, when the cars were more plentiful. These were the last of their kind in the nation with the exception of similar service on Amtrak. With their demise ends an era. A toast to the bar car — and a vanishing way of life in America. My team at @pix11news  and @jtansf broke the story earlier this week. #madmen #cocktailculture #americana #barcar #metronorth #newhavenline #1970s #icestorm #drinkup #dondraper #rogersterling #cocktails #beer #wine #railroad #trains #railfan #commuters #suburbs #johncheever

1960s Upper East Side white brick tower meets a sharp blue sky. This is exactly the sort of building Don Draper lives in. #madmen

Nice midcentury modern lounge chair and lamp at East Village antique shop. Perfect ensemble for a “Mad  Men” viewing party. #madmen #midcentury
