Hayward, California - circa 1960s
By request (this is the only one I currently have, Dean), here's an aerial postcard shot of Southland Mall back in the '60s (or Southland Shopping Center, as it was called in its early years).
Sadly, comments about this mall's current state are sure not very kind online (see resource link #4 below for just one example I came across). Sounds a little rough these days. It's just plain sad that so many once-great, vibrant, family-friendly shopping malls eventually come to this, where a family can't even feel safe going there anymore (if what people are saying online is true). Be nice to turn back the clock, wouldn't it?
