View From a Bus Window

Detroit 240 Big Boy Sign

While traveling on a family reunion tour bus last July I spotted this
BIG Boy hamburger sign in Detroit, MI and it brought back a lot of childhood memories.
I shot this photo through the bus window.

Here’s a little history of Bobs Big Boy
In 1936, Bob Wian sold his prized DeSoto Roadster to purchase a small hamburger stand in Glendale, California. He named it Bob’s Pantry.One night in 1937, a regular customer requested something different for a change. Bob went to work and the first double-decker hamburger was born Customers couldn’t get enough of Bob’s new creation. One fan in particular was a chubby six-year-old boy in droopy overalls He would often help Bob sweep up in exchange for a free burger. In honor of his young friend, Wian decided to name the better burger the Big Boy®. Another regular customer, a movie studio animator, sketched the now famous character on a napkin.
The rest is history.
