Does seem an odd advertisement from McDonald’s to give away steaks and ham for Valentine’s Day. But this is from 1961 and even the logo is different at McDonald’s.

This advertisement is from the February 10th, 1961 Sarasota Journal.

The McDonald’s in the ad was at 1707 S. Tamiami Trail in Sarasota. McDonald’s is gone. Here is what that address looks like today:
