Troy, Michigan - March, 1976
The glorious original Oakland Mall main entrance! Well, it's glorious looking to your eyes if you grew up with this mall like I did. If you didn't, just trust me, this is really cool to see. :)
In '76 I was still being carted to this mall (just a couple miles from my house then) by mom and dad, but in a few years I'd be old enough to at least be able to get dropped off and left there (which was key!) with my friends, to hang out, look at record albums, buy frozen cokes, and flirt with girls--though not necessarily in that order.
So yeah, I sat around that main entrance there (inside and out) having a lot of youthful fun, many a day and evening, as a teen. And those were certainly the days, as well as some great memories.
