Sculptures that could be found at the Northland Mall in Michigan.  I created a previous post of malls in Michigan but somehow left out ANY photos of the Northland Mall.  Allee told me that the northland mall was where it was all happening back in the day, geezus, Allee even worked at this mall.  I too was a mall rat in the 80’s.  Just a different era and a different mall in a different state of course…..

You know what kills me when looking at these pics?  Where did all these amazing sculptures end up?  They probably ended up in Allee’s pops junkyard…….

View of the parking lot…..look at the amazing cars.

WOW!!!!!!  The Northland Mall in the summer of 1963.

    DON’T EVEN ASK ME HOW HAPPY THIS POST MAKES ME!!!! The FIRST shopping mall in America and where I spent EVERY Saturday of my youth! And the parking lot where I learned to drive so I LOVE that overhead shot! Can you even imagine that sculpture garden?!!!

    If I’m not mistaken the world’s 1st escalator was in Detroit as well. I’m guessing the one in the photo was at Hudson’s.

    Hey K2, I don’t know what it is, but the mall I grew up with also had some fantastic sculptures scattered throughout the outdoor mall. What memories. I should do a post on MY mall! lol
