Birth of a Mall: Birds Eye


This is what the birds saw on Opening Day August 4, 1976. Amazing isn't it?

As you can see, the outparcels such as the Craftsmen Studio, Color Tile, Toys R' Us, and Service Merchandise aren't yet built. I know that Toys R' Us opened in 1985.

Seems a little unreal thinking back about it. That mall started out so popular.

Steve: Very true. I'm going to post some more opening day pictures soon that also include retro 70's cars in the parking lot.

Sarge99: I'm going to once I get settled with this computer. It's my dad's and the add picture feature won't work on it.

Sounds great. I finally got a DSL connection so I need to get with you sometime and find out how to do some things on my blog.

THANKS

Heh, I forgot about Color Tile place. when I was younger and I'd pass by it at night in my parents car (in Hampton, VA) I thought it was called "Color Time".
