Lloyd Center


Portland, Oregon. 1960's

Many thanks to reader, Rob Dunn, for submitting the great postcard above of the stairway in the East Mall location of Lloyd Center! Thanks for taking the time to share Rob. :) Current site.


1960's

Toyland. In some of my earliest toy/dime store memories, this is what they looked like.

Man, that Toy shop photo is awesome. Before the glut of licensed toys and electronic gizmos-a toy store for kids, not collectors. Seldom have I seen a toy shop more attractive outside of ancient "Gumby" episodes when I was a kid.

I had a monkey just like the one in the window. Somewhere there's a picture of me circa 1970 sitting on a white vinyl 60's style chair with the monkey & a big pink bunny :) .... BTW - AWESOME SITE! I just discovered it & I have a feeling I'll be up half the night now.
