The Mountain View Historical Society celebrated its 60th anniversary on Sunday with help from the city's most historic hamburger, the "Parisian burger," which once drew crowds to Linda's Drive In on El Camino Real.
The beloved burger's special sauce and sourdough bun were recreated as accurately as possible for the event, so all 100 or so attendees could have one.
"It's just amazing that people remember it so well," said Rebecca Riggs, who ran Linda's Drive In with her husband Dean Riggs from 1956 to 1985.
Organizers said the sold-out event was a success thanks to the weather and the Parisian burgers. Highlights included a city proclamation for city historian Barbara Kinchen and a slide show of lost city landmarks by local historian Nick Perry.
