The McDonald’s on Roswell Road near Wieuca, Atlanta, November 1984
My previous post of a photo from this day got such a great response that I felt like I should round out the set of tiny, tubby Kathleen in a full Mickey Mouse sweatsuit (with contrast piping — so hip) making amusing faces. Anyone who has known me for any amount of time knows that the face I’m making in the second photo means I am concentrating VERY HARD on the task at hand — staying upright. Pretty much everyone in my family has a similar version of that face. Variations on a theme (of sticking out one’s tongue to increase focus).
I love the old-school McDonald’s playgrounds. I don’t remember the Grimace cage being quite so scary as it is on this site that documents Playlands of yore, but I do remember quite a few of these playset pieces from back in the day. I’ve definitely recently seen a faded old Chief Big Mac chillin’ in a yard near the Braves stadium — I should go check it out and take pictures.
