International Malls: Broad Walk Shopping Centre


Harlow, Essex, England - circa 1950s

Let's detour over to England for just a quick second or two, so we can take a peek at this pleasant little scene. Depicted in this picture is a view of the old Harlow Broad Walk Shopping Centre, one of several swanky shopping "precincts", all located in Harlow Town Centre, in England. I'd certainly go back in time and shop there if I could.

This place has a very Mies van der Rohe look to it. Modern yet sleek.

I wouldn't be surprised if it still looked a lot like the photo. Many postwar shopping precincts in Europe survived relatively unchanged.
