Baldwin Park, CA

2014:
vintage sign
The In-N-Out Burger chain was established in 1948 in Baldwin Park. In 1954, during the construction of the interstate next door, the building was torn down and a new one built about 75 feet away due. When a new location was built just down the block in 2004, this location closed. The building shown in the 2008 photo above was demolished in 2011. The neon and bulb sign in front of it was removed. A replica of the original building was built in 2013 and opened to the public in 2014. The new building now serves as an In-N-Out Burger museum.

The new location's modern plastic sign is visible in the the background of the first photo above. The sign with the clock is located right next to I-10. That sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. The clock no longer works. [map]

This vintage sign is displayed at the company's headquarters in Baldwin Park. This sign is either the original sign or built around the same time. [map]

In-N-Out Burger claims to have been the first drive-thru hamburger stand in California. Indoor seating has been added to the company's locations only in recent years. There are now more than 200 locations with most of them in California. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3.
