Great 60’s and 70’s shots of Michigan Shopping Malls Submitted by denny March 23rd, 2013 It’s the Colonial Shopping Center in Port Huron. Genesee Valley Center in Flint, Michigan. I love when malls have “greetings from….” post cards. Westland Mall.
Swooning for all of these, Though I wish there was one for Northland, which was very near where I lived. It was literally the first shopping mall in the world. Don’t even ask how it changed my life. Also, my first part time job was there, working in a sportswear store called Stephens Sportswear. Unfortunately there was no hip clothing there so my discount did me no good. Northland is architecturally distinct and atomic to this day.
Great post!!!… Love seeing the The Genesee Valley Mall…why did I love Schiller’s, did they have hats?? In the center of the Mall we can see the “Friendly Frog” by Marshall Fredericks… Allee, Marshall Fredericks did your favorite “Boy and the Bear” at Northland.. :)
Loved Northland, I forgot how modern Westland looked when it was new??..
