A group including Lon Rogers, left, held up signs as they protested the building of a new McDonalds at 473 Main St. near Forest Ave. in Lexington, Ky., on April 4, 1983. The restaurant ended up being built but without a drive-thru window. McDonalds later moved to another location and Cielito Lindo Mexican restaurant moved into the old building. The building was torn down a few years ago. Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff

The restaurant was built, but without a drive-through window. McDonald’s later moved to another site, and Cielito Lindo Mexican restaurant moved into the old building for a few years. The building eventually was torn down, and the empty lot is now used for a seasonal flower stand.  Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
