Car Hops and Curb Service: A History of the American Drive-In Restaurant Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Travel back to the heyday of the American drive-in restaurant—complete with swinging ponytails, shiny new automobiles, and the aroma of French fries drifting through unrolled car windows. Beginning with the original Texas Pig Stand of 1921, this evocative compendium cruises through 40 years of drive in culture, tracing the history of roadside restaurant architecture and the people who created it. Engagingly illustrated with historical photographs and a rich assortment of related ephemera, from menus to matchbox covers, Car Hops and Curb Service chronicles a unique chapter of popular culture for anyone who sipped a malt, hung a tray, or cruised a drive in parking lot—or wished they had.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 124-126) and index.
