2000, 2800 or 5501?[edit]

The article says "...2000 block of South Olive Street..." but the reference [1] says Jefferson Square. According to [2], Jefferson Square is "in the 2800-block of Olive Street", which agrees with the article's stated latitude and longitude on Google Maps, although I can't see the sign. Yellow Pages [3] don't help: the only McDonalds listed on Olive is at 5501 S Olive, which looks like woods in the (perhaps outdated) satellite view. Art LaPella (talk) 21:17, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Should have said 2800 I believe, probably a typo or misreading or something, thank you for pointing that out. IvoShandor (talk) 21:30, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
I can confirm that it is NOT 5100 as well. Google Maps is mistaken. There is nothing there! Broooooooce (talk) 23:01, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Katrina and Biloxi[edit]

A user dropped by and changed the text to indicate that the Biloxi sign existed before Hurricane Katrina but not after. I reverted for two reasons: no reference, and the article that is used as a reference for the Biloxi fact was published in September 2007, more than two years after Katrina. If this assertion that I reverted is true a reference would get it included, wouldn't want the article to be wrong or outdated.IvoShandor (talk) 17:20, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

  • OK: I found this: [4] which probably doesn't qualify as reliable but they have photos of the sign being torn down, I am looking for something a bit better before I add back my reversion. Thanks to the user who originally added this. IvoShandor (talk) 17:28, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Additional Signs[edit]

Additional signs of this type also exist in Winter Haven, Florida.

I was looking at that page, I wonder if we could find some references to back up that any of those are actually original, some look like replicas. IvoShandor (talk) 18:02, 27 April 2008 (UTC)
The Magnolia, NJ one was still there, at least as of a couple months ago when I was last home. 68.80.84.37 (talk) 19:52, 27 April 2008 (UTC)


Most are originals, I know for sure the one in Winter Haven is original; just ask any local person who's old enough.--70.126.236.79 (talk) 01:51, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

There is also a single arch sign at 503 College Ave, South Houston, TX 77587 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hifi1969 (talkcontribs) 20:24, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Capitalization[edit]

Why is "Sign" capitalized in this article? Robert K S (talk) 19:51, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Trivial[edit]

Hey I know some are going to attack me for this but isn't an article about an old McDonald's rather trivial? I think it should be added to a list of National Register of Historic Places with a paragraph about it with a picture. It seems like a good idea rather than devoting an entire article to a small McDonalds.

Just a Suggestion. --98.25.102.152 (talk) 20:31, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

The article is not about the McDonald's, but the sign itself. I would make the argument that any item on the National Register of Historic Places warrants having it's own article. Furthermore, the list is rather large and to have one article containing paragraphs describing each item would make an article that was far too long; it would also come at the expense of details that people may be seeking.

Motion for deletion.[edit]

This has to be one of the stupidest articles on wikipedia. There's a single arch McDonalds a few blocks from where I live. You want to do an article about that too? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chazwozel (talkcontribs) 21:40, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Living near a historic landmark does not make it any less significant. If you can provide verifiable secondary sources reporting on the McDonalds near where you live, then perhaps an article ought to be created. Until such time we don't have any way to determine if your statement contains accurate information. 216.36.188.184 (talk) 21:53, 27 April 2008 (UTC)


Yeah fine http://www.agilitynut.com/eateries/mcd.html Eat it, nerdlinger. This article is pure crap. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chazwozel (talkcontribs) 01:15, 28 April 2008

If that one is recognized as a historical landmark, then it can get an article too. ---J.S (T/C/WRE) 17:02, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Tulsa, OK?[edit]

Isn't there one in Tulsa, OK on Memorial? Ziggy the Hamster (talk) 23:01, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Haha, oh my god, that's one insightful comment. IvoShandor (talk) 12:13, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Scranton, PA (Keyser Avenue)[edit]

There is a McDonald's with a single arch in Scranton, PA as well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.181.151.222 (talk) 00:26, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
