The Snowflake Drive In on Ogden Avenue. (Gone) Lyons Illinois. May 1989., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph way back in May of 1989.
One of my favorite local Chicago area seasonal soft serve ice cream roadside drive in eatery establishments that I would occasionally stop at many years ago, was non other than the classic 1950's era Snowflake Drive In, which was located at the intersection of Ogden and Lawndale Avenues, in west suburban Lyons Illinois.
Aftter many years of being a "Seasonal" business, a new owner purchased the place during the 1990's, and added a small dining room addition to help this place become a year round business.
At some point within the last ten years, the place was sold and was soon demolished. A Culver's ice cream and hamburger fast food restaurant now occupies the space to the right of this picture. The old concrete slab that the old Snowflake Drive In stood on for many years, is still in evidence here today.
