Don's Sangamon Dairy Drive-In, Springfield, Illinois. (ca. 1957)

One of the popular eateries in Springfield during the late 1950s and 1960s was Don's Sangamon Dairy Drive-In, located at 2100 South MacArthur Boulevard (at Ash Street), in Springfield, Illinois. 
The Sangamon Dairy's products were prominently featured on the restaurant's menu. Hamburgers and milkshakes was the best seller with ice cream cones being the big draw.

  1. Hello, thank you for posting this. I lived in the neighborhood when this place first opened. It was quite a big deal... My dad worked for "Sangamo" Dairy after he came back from WW2.
    When I got to high school age, I worked here from 1968 to 1970 when the building was being used by Fred Neighbor's "Sandy's" franchise. Tons of awesome memories here. Thank you for posting.
