Escondido Village Mall
Escondido, California. 1960's
Some wild psychedelic colors here, and a really ambitious (and busy) lighting array! I would've loved to have seen this baby lit up in the evening. Bet it was sweet.
Sadly, this colorful mall is no more. Like so many others, it's now a strip mall. According to info on the web, it had been extensively remodeled in the 1980s, so the incredible view you see here, was probably gone after that (if not before).
When it opened in 1964, officials boasted that it was the first fully enclosed mall in the state "where you can stroll from one store to another without touching a door--or even seeing one."
