Lake Air Mall

Waco, Texas - 1960's

All I can say is, WOW.

Cool place! That's one thing I miss in malls these days, a certain amount of "dimness" that offers intimatcy (sic). I must be getting too old but malls today are bright as hell.

It does look like a shopper needs a flashlight, though ;)

We lived in Waco in the early to mid-70's and regularly shopped at Lake Air Mall. I really liked the mall as it was on a human scale and had just about anything you'd need. I recall it had Montgomery Ward at one end and Cox's Dept. Store at the other. There was also a Movie Theatre as well. I remember the T,G & Y store and Shellenberger's Clothing too.

Really sorry to see it has gone away. The malls and strip centers of today are so bland and predictable...

Memories! I lived in Waco in the early 60's. I remember going to Lake Air with my mom. Special times. Thanks for posting the picture!

Kinda reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesan buildings... crazy.

I also grew up in Waco in the 70s & 80s.....had many lunches and dinners with my mom at Picadilly Cafeteria, then a movie at the Lake Air Cinema (also demolished).
Lake Air didn't have Cox's though, it had Goldstein-Migel. Cox's was at Westview SC. In the beginning I have read that Safeway had a store next to Wards. Lake Air was "redeveloped", into another homogenized cookie cutter center with a Super Target, Goldsteins turned into Dunlaps....But now Dunlaps is closed.

I went to Baylor in the late 90s and used to go walking around Lake Air Mall and pretend that I was living in a different era. I loved how it was able to hold on to that old ambience instead of being modernized.
