Southdale Center - Dayton's

Edina, Minnesota - 1956

The Dayton's anchor wing as seen from the air in 1956, when Southdale mall had just opened. Everything was still brand spanking new here (and the world still fresh and clean) when this vintage photo was snapped!

This is a beautiful picture. You clearly can see the roadway to the underground serviceway. I even like the way the parking lots are angled to match the adjoining buildings.

If you hadn't noticed, you can also see Donaldson's, which has now been out of business for 20 years, I'm afraid.
