1970's

Unknown mall interior. I do see a Ben Franklin store over there, though! Loved those.

What a great picture! From the look of the giant ornaments hanging from the ceiling, this must have been around Christmas--

My first reaction is that it is Mariner Mall in Superior Wisconsin, but I bet there are a ton of malls that looked exactly like that.

thanks for the comments, guys. We'll get it figured out eventually.

I noticed, too, the ornaments hanging from the ceiling. I agree it must've been somewhere around Christmas here.

It looks a lot like Harlem-Irving Shopping Center in Chicago, IL.
Very generic-looking mall.

Hmm, the Harlem-Irving? OK, I'll look into it!

Hmm, almost looks like a defunct mall in Lacey Washington known as South Sound Mall. I remember a Ben Franklin in there, and the architecture seems familiar...

Looks like the Richmond Mall in Richmond Heights, Ohio. It's since been remodeled.

It also looks like it could be the Pembroke Mall in Virginia Beach, VA -- although I'm new to the area and don't know anything about the history of Pembroke, except that it was recently remodeled.

I don't know where it is. But, I do think I see an aluminum Christmas tree in the center. I never seen a Ben Franklin inside a mall though. Only in a downtown.
Interesting!

Bad Cat: that was my reaction, too, that it was the Mariner Mall. But, the Mariner never had those shell seats, they had brick planters with wood integrated benches.

Definitely not Harlem-Irving Plaza in Chicago (The "HIP")--I spent my childhood there and there was no Ben Franklin or carpeting or furniture like that.

Definitely not Pembroke Mall in Virginia Beach. It looked nothing like that.
