Love this Carolyn, Great memories so Americana! Voted here and in Americana contest.

Carolyn Marshall replied:

Thank you so much, Diana, for taking the time to vote and your comment. It is very much appreciated.

Maybe a bit before my time, but I still like the retro 50's icons.

Carolyn Marshall replied:

Heather, I was just a kid during the 50s, but have fond memories of some of these wonderful times. You can't help but smile when you think of the drive-in food places where the waitresses actually served you on roller skates (not blades, LOL!) It was a fun time for sure.

Oh, yes! Me, too. Thank you, Cindy.

Added to my favorites. This is a wonderful reminder of my childhood!

Absolutely! I can remember going to these drive-ins and being waited on by waitresses on skates. :-)

Great Americana, i'm hungry :D

Thank you Bob and Gwyn for your comments. Isn't nostalgia fun!

Love it ... Grew up with the the Big Boy! My fav on the menu was chili spaghetti ;-)

Hi Carolyn...I like your image. Very playful display. I remember those days very used to be such fun...Cheers Bob

Thanks, Mary. I would venture to say a lot of people go down that memory lane when they see this. I sure did!

Love this, Carolyn. I remember the Big Boy drive in I used to go to with my mother. When they first introduced the "slim jim" it was twice the size it is today. Can't beat their malteds!! Great Shot.

Yeah, I couldn't help but laugh when I saw him. Gosh, does it make you feel old when you can actually remember "being there" as opposed to just seeing the pictures of it and imagining what it was like. :-)

I remember him :) Sweet childhood, (and grown-up), memories...Great shot, Carolyn!

Artist's Description

I remember my high school years driving down what was called hamburger row or hamburger lane. It was the section of town that had nothing but places to get a quick bite to eat. One very popular place was Frisch's Big Boy. Some would drive-thru and get hamburgers, milkshakes, and other great food to go. But the best memories were made by those who parked. Food would be brought out to you on the classic drive-in trays that rested on your car window. Lots of kids would meet after school or in the evening just to hang out together.

About Carolyn Marshall

Carolyn Marshall

I have been a photographer for many years. For so long, in fact, that I can no longer imagine my life without a camera to capture its special moments. It took me quite some time before I was able to connect myself to being an artist, because in my mind a photographer and an artist were two distinctly different things. While they were both creative, they used entirely different processes to achieve their artistic goals. Over time, however, I have recognized the remarkable similarities in the way that we look at visual elements such as composition, colors, lines, and light. I have come to understand that what constitutes fine art stands apart from whatever techniques that we artists use to ultimately reach that special place. My...
