Mountain View, California - circa 1966
This groovy photo speaks for itself! The quintessential looking swinging sixties mall, complete with funky flower pattern hangings, and wall-to-wall carpeting (which this mall had). I only wish this shot was in color! (image courtesy of the Mountain View Preservation Alliance)
According to the MVPA:
"The Mall was shut down in 1984 after owners felt it could not compete with newer or expanding malls like Vallco and San Antonio Center. The building was converted into an HP office building. HP is vacating the building in the near future, and the future development of the property has yet to be determined."Obviously there's no official website for Mayfield Mall (Northern California's first fully enclosed, climate-controlled mall) since it's long gone, but a quick search found some good background info on this cool page, among a few others, if you're interested.
History: 1960s - 1984 (dead)
