Elsewhere Online: Southdale by Shorpy

SouthdaleThe “Always Something Interesting” photo blog Shorpy.com features a 1956 photo of Southdale, originally seen in Life magazine. Not a lot has changed: the escalators run toward the camera’s point of view, the Apple Store was just a fever dream in little Stevie Jobs’ crib, and guys no longer wear suits. Except for the guys selling suits in Macy’s. I’m pretty sure the mod lighting is gone too — I’ll check next time I’m in Hot Topic.

I bet that Woolworth’s rocked.
