Pizitz at Five Points West Mall
Birmingham, Alabama - circa 1970
Glitzy entrance to the Pizitz department store inside the old (now defunct) Five Points West Mall.
Hard to add much solid mall detail for this one at the end like I usually do, as, according to Birmingham Rewound, this was really just a mini-mall addition constructed around 1969-70, directly behind the long-standing Five Points West shopping center (aka "Shopping City"), that lasted barely a decade and only had one major anchor--this Pizitz store. So not really a traditional kind of shopping mall here. (Read more of its history here.)
Still, mini-mall or not (cue Dr. Evil: "We shall call it... mini-mall"), I certainly love the small slice of retro heaven seen in this photograph. The store logo is especially nice!
