Adjusted for inflation, their burgers would now be worth around $2.70

More like $1.69 -- the photo is from 1955, not 1937.

In 1937 a dollar was worth about $20 today, so 15 cents would be about $3 .

The first McDonald's opened in 1940. This picture is from the 1950s.

Great pic! Just watched the founder for the first time. If you'ven't seen it I highly recommend giving it a view. It is on Netflix.

You know what was down the street? Taco Bell.. But it was not taco bell yet. They served burgers, and got their ass kicked by the McDonald's. It was after said ass kicking that the business pivoted and began serving tacos.

They say tacos are just the hotdogs of hamburgers

And yet their hamburgers were already famous, crazy to think about
