The Galleria Mall


Houston, Texas - postmarked 1984

Great postcard showing skaters down on the ice rink in the Galleria, as shoppers stop by to gawk. Here's their current website.

Oh man, the Galleria. For a Galveston boy, there was no better place to cruise for those fast, big-city girls than the Galleria.

The Galleria is still a great mall. Very upscale.

I would complain, that this is an open forum for dating or gazing with lustful eyes, but in this day & time I'm just happy that you're looking for the opposite sex(Romans 8). Great picture Chris, hope you find your hearts desire...Monique.

Oh, it's the Houston mall with the ice skating rink. That ice skating rink impressed me mightily, when I was there with my parents in 1978. Nice to know that it's still there.

Grew up with the Galleria since it started... lost a tooth there when I was 6 at the Mexican restaurant that was on the bottom floor by a corner of the skating rink! Was it El Fenix? It was always special to go to this mall. Shame they lost their cool, mod movie theaters. The screen and walls were bathed in a dim, soothing aqua blue light. No curtains or other fuss, just very streamlined.

Nice pic of the Galleria rink. They do a Christmas show every year, getting local elite skaters. This year it was probably Katy Taylor.

We've lost so many mall rinks...but now Mills properties have built a couple at their sites. Did you know 2006 US Adult Nationals was at a mall?
