Pig Stand Coffee Shop #41

I just made a return trip to Beaumont recently and took some pics (among many) of the circa 1943 Pig Stand. Last time I was in Beaumont a couple of years ago, it was an overcast day, so it was nice to take some of this with the sun shining:

Originating in San Antonio, these popular coffee shops were drive-ins in their heyday in the 1920s. The chicken-fried steak was the best choice on the menu.
