Northland Center Mall
Southfield, Michigan - circa 1950s
Vintage exterior postcard view of Michigan's Victor Gruen beauty, Northland Center, as seen from the parking lot, where you can see the mall's two-level rooftop parking arrangement. In fact, if you look real close in this photo, you can see a couple buses dropping shoppers off (or picking them up, whatever the case may be) on the second level.
See this past entry for another, slightly different view of this same shot, this one for a perspective further left, this one for another angle from the far right side I think, and then see this entry for a closeup look at the parking area itself. Whew! We have it handled from just about every angle here. :)
Here's the card's caption:
"Standing in the center of immense parking facilities, Northland, Detroit's new, great shopping center attracts buyers from a wide area."Well Northland's definitely got the parking covered, it would appear. And then some.
