BIG WHEEL, Valparioso IN



Big wheel, small chain: seems as if there were three of these places around Indiana. One even had a drive-in component.

The Big Wheel, you’ll note, had a wrought-iron image of a buggy with smaller wheels hanging on the modern stone. That sort of anachronistic clusterfarg was common. Neither the buggy or the type on the Big Wheel itself had anything to do with the modern script of the “Coffee Shop” logo by the door. But who cared?
