International Malls: Southland Shopping Centre

Cheltenham, Victoria, Australia - 1968

The Centre Court fountain, at the Southland Shopping Centre in Australia (also known as Westfield Southland, according to Westfield). This mall opened in 1968 so this photograph was probably taken right around the opening for promotional purposes. And though not in the U.S., hey, a groovy mall is a groovy mall! :)

Here's Southland's Wikipedia entry, for anyone who's interested in reading more about it.

I only wish Toledo had malls like this.

Ah, a very early Westfield. I always loved tri-level malls. They always look more impressive than they might be.
