I am under the weather today so posting a pic I took on Friday when driving to a friend’s house.  It is a “Humpty Dumpty” Big Guy Drive-In sign.   “Humpty Dumpty” had been a small chain restaurant that was popular in the late 60’s and early 70’s, although I never visited any of their location, just seeing one when riding in a car as a kid.

Location: 3200 Block of Fairfield, Fort Wayne, IN

  1. I remember the one in Decatur IN. Setting on the left side upper corner was an egg with a face and hands and legs. the egg was in the sitting position with his legs dangling over the edge and onto the side of the sign and the egg rocked back and forth. I would like to have this sign or restore it on site.

  2. corner of Packard and S. Fairfield. on the east side of the Ave. and just south of the Marathon gas station that sits on the west side.

  3. who is the owner?? My family wants to own it

  4. I am not sure who owns it. The address appears to be 3237 Fairfield Avenue in Fort Wayne. You could probably contact the Allen County Clerks office to find out who the owner of the property is.
