Aerial photograph of the Topanga Plaza shopping mall (now officially referred to as the Westfield Topanga), taken around the time of the mall's first opening in 1964. Here's a bit of historical reference from Wikipedia:
"Opened February 10, 1964, Topanga Plaza was California's first enclosed shopping mall. It was originally anchored by The Broadway, May Company and Montgomery Ward. Nordstrom was added in 1983.Mall history: 1964 - present
In 1992 May Centers, Inc., the original developer, was renamed CenterMark Properties and sold by May Department Stores in 1993 to a consortium led by Westfield Holdings, Ltd., a predecessor of The Westfield Group.
The May Company location was renamed Robinsons-May in 1993, The Broadway location was sold to Sears in 1996 and the Montgomery Ward closed in 1999. As previously mentioned, Robinsons-May was renamed Macy's in September 2006, and despite rumors to the contrary will continue to operate the store despite the proximity of the Macy's at Westfield Promenade."
