Frölunda Torg Mall
Gothenburg, Sweden - 1970's
No, this isn't a "mall of America". Surprising you a little today. As the caption says, it's in Sweden. But it's just so shagadelically beautiful (and still in the spirit of this site) that I had to show it to you guys and, more importantly, point you to the source, where's there's more swanky retro Swedish shopping mall/architececture/lifestyle goodness to be had!
Chris, who's an esteemed regular visitor of this here blog, publishes the Ultra Swank - Lifestyle Adventures blog from Sweden, and if you haven't visited him yet, I urge you to do so (I just belatedly added him to the links here). Good stuff over there, man! Citing the photo I blogged above as an example, he's done some wonderful retro Swedish shopping center entries of late, that anyone who digs Malls of America should find of interest, too. Very cool to see how malls in Sweden looked back in the day. Do check it out!
