As you can see in this video , Speedee is still running the show at the Downey McDonald’s, which opened in 1953, a decade or so before Willard Scott became the first, terrifying version of Ronald. #mcdonalds #california #california_igers #downey #speedee #signgeeks #oldsigns #retrosigns #retro #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #roadsideamerica #americana #neonsigns #neonporn

An abandoned old SRO takes the name of the San Francisco Chronicle across the street. And that’s most assuredly where the similarities end. The rusty relic of the Chronicle Hotel is as good an indication as any of how rapidly trendy SOMA has transformed in recent years. #sfchronicle #signgeeks #signfixation #rous_roadsigns #roadsideamerica #jj_abandoned #jj_delightfully_deteriorating #urbex #oldsigns #retrosigns #retrologist #retro #unitedstatesofdecay #soma

An all-American stop along the Lincoln Highway in historic Chambersburg, Pa.

A faded, rusty relic in Red Hook Brooklyn for the long-defunct Clinton Cafe. This sign was likely hiding for years behind a modern retail replacement. #redhook #brooklyn #relics #signgeeks #oldsigns #urbanromantix #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #ghostsigns #ig_nycity #insta_america_americana #insta_america #oldschool #retro

I gotta spread the news about Garden State News. This shop has a classic hand-painted sign with plenty of charm. Signs like this, in Rahway, N.J., aren’t as common as you’d think these days. #signporn #signjunkie #signfixation #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #roadsideamerica #newjersey #gardenstate #vintage #retro

A relic of the 1939-40 World’s Fair, the White Mana diner in Jersey City dishes sliders in a compact art-deco time machine that was once billed as the “diner of the future.” It still feels that way!

Vinnie’s Pizzeria in Jersey City has sweet vintage signage, but the yellow splash for “heroes” gives it a dash of retro dazzle. #pizzeria #newjersey #lincolnhighway #retrosigns #oldsigns #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #roadsideamerica #retro #vintage #retrologist

New Jersey is the state of diners, and the Arlington’s impressive neon holds its own in the battle of epic signage. The real feast is on the facade, folks. #neonsign #neon #newjersey #ig_diners #diners #americana #roadsideamerica #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #signgeeks #ig_signage #vintage #retro

A relic of the era of “Dirty Dancing,” the Borscht Belt and idyllic resort vacations to escape sweltering city summers, the iconic Red Apple Rest was THE obligatory stop on the way to the Catskills — the Jewish Alps —  for decades. Today, Red Apple is forlorn and crumbling, full of the ghosts of sweet summers from a lost America. #catskills #redapplerest #borschtbelt #vacations #oldsigns #roadsideamerica #rous_roadsigns #americana #signgeeks #oldsigns #retro #travel #summer
