About this creation
My newest restaurant LEGO MOC is probably my most obscure. White Tower restaurants were started in the late '20s in Milwaukee, WI and spread throughout the east coast during the Depression. Their blatant rip off of the White Castle look and slogans didn't go unnoticed. White Castle took them to court in 1929 and won. They were forced to stop using the "castle" motif and were prevented from opening any new stores within a certain distance from any existing White Castles. Throughout the'30s and '40s they tried many different building designs - most often with a Streamline Modrene look.

I based my White Tower off this 1935 New York location:


I know this set probably won't be nearly as popular as my other creations - such as my Kentucky Fried Chicken. But being such a fan of the '30s Streamline style - I HAD to build this for my town.

If you want one for your town too - I offer instructions (and stickers) on my site: dustincropsboy.com Thanks for looking.
