Kirby's Pigstand Opens in 1921


Kirby's Pig Stand was the first drive in restaurant. Americans had fallen in love with their vehicles, a drivers license meant freedom. Kirby's Pig Stand was the first to respond to the teenage-need to get a steering column messy from BBQ Sauce.  The restaurant was opened in Dallas Texas, in 1921.

 Did they get their food before they headed to the first feature length film, Dream Street?
Were they reading the paper and finding out who won the First American Beauty Pageant? (Margaret Gorman of Washington, D.C.)
 Where they wearing the new perfume, Chanel No. 5?
 Were they romantically inclined or plainly thinking dirty hormonal thoughts?

 It was the roaring times, that day, when the pig stand opened in 1921. Nine years later the crash and the somber times of the great depression, but now they could enjoy the roaring times.   But what did not make the headlines was the UFO that crashed in your back yard.  First Published 10.9.2010
