Belden Village Mall
Canton, Ohio - circa 1970
This is a repost of an earlier photo I ran last year. The beautiful interior of Belden Village Mall (now called the Westfield Belden Village, if you listen to The Westfield Group). This is an upgraded, color-corrected version of my previous photo, that is much more accurate as to the actual true color scheme of the mall circa the early '70s, at the time of this shot. A very noticeable difference if you compare the two.
Thanks very much to, JP Kabala, who sent me this photo several months ago, and had this to say about it:
"I color-corrected your picture. Not only did I work there at one time, but the original architect is a friend of mine, so I remember it well. While icky Harvest Gold was certainly a part of the color scheme, it was not the only color. That appears to be BVM as it was originally designed and remained from 1970 to 1983 or so. There have been several “remodels” the most sweeping in the mid-80‘s."Again, thanks JP! Now if you could just tell me the name of the architect, and maybe the definite year this mall first opened if you know (looks like 1970, from what you said), then I'd be all set.
