40 Old School Photos Of McDonald’s That Will Take You Back In Time

Published 4 years ago

If you’re anything like me, you probably remember that going to a McDonald’s was quite a big deal back when you were a kid – you knew you were getting a Happy Meal, and could feel the pressure of picking out the best toy before you even entered the restaurant. And don’t even get me started on the toys – somehow they were so much better than the ones available today. Sadly, this novelty eventually wore off as we grew up and nowadays McDonald’s is nothing more than a place where you can drop by to grab a quick burger, fries, and a coke.

Even though we can’t bring those old days back, we have a series of old school pics of McDonald’s from the 80s and 90s collected by the “nostalgiaholics” of r/nostalgia that will take you back in time, even if it’s just for a few minutes – check them out below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
