Default More On McDonald's Opening

Yes, the opening of McDonald's brought an onslaught of people who had been anxiously awaiting their first taste of those cholesterol filled burgers we all grew to love. The menu was quite limited – hamburgers, cheeseburgers and fries, as I recall. I don’t believe the fish sandwich had been introduced at that stage - definitely no Big Macs and no drive-thru window. They had six to eight ordering stations and there were long lines at all of them during the lunch and dinner hours for weeks to come. It was a busy place. Burger King never cause such a stir when they opened a couple years later and the subsequent fast food establishments were generally greeted with a “ho-hum”. The age of fast food had come to Laconia and Union Avenue was soon to be transformed into Fast Food Lane.
