The Galleria Mall
Houston, Texas - circa early '80s
An expansive view above of the Polar Ice Galleria skating rink in the Galleria Mall. This full-sized rink, which I've featured before, is still there today, just like Lloyd Center's classic and famous ice rink. Nice to know there are still a few left out there.
To the left is a more recent photo of the same area, just prior to a major expansion to the mall that was completed in March of 2003, in this, the fifth-largest shopping complex in the United States. It's truly beautiful how the natural light plays down onto the ice's surface through the glass atrium panels high overhead!
