International Malls: Roselands Shopping Centre
Roselands, New South Wales, Australia - 1970 or 71
First there was Snakes on a Plane, I now give you, Planes on a Mall! Heh, there's just no way I can resist posting this picture. It's not often you see airplanes on the roof of a shopping center--in this case, Roselands Shopping Centre (built on the site of a golf course), which was the first shopping mall built in Australia. Here's the photograph's description caption:

The planes shown are a Mustang on the left, Japanese 'Oscar' in the middle, and the wing of a Spitfire on the right."
