Golden Ring Mall sign

Rosedale, Maryland - October 10, 1986

T
he wonderful and quite distinctive(!) entrance sign at the Golden Ring Mall, in Rosedale, Maryland. A Hecht Co. store is also visible in the background as a bonus (the mall was originally anchored by Hecht's and Wards).

In recent years what was Golden Ring Mall, was razed and redeveloped into a generic Wal-Mart/Sam's Club anchored deal, now called the Centre at Golden Ring. (Nothing to see here, move along...)

This looks so much like the Gold Circle logo.

Golden Ring Mall slogan was"never ending". Prime mall in its heyday.

Agreed with Mikey. It was falling apart towards the end though. I remember as a child thinking how bad it smelled with the cigarette stained walls and mildew. Golden Ring & Tolgate Mall in Bel Air...

I recently had a dream that I invented a time machine. The first thing I wanted to do was go back and visit Golden Ring Mall. Easily the greatest mall of all time in its heyday. I remember going to Midnight Madness at the movie theater many many times to see Rocky Horror Picture Show with my friends. It brought a tear to my eye when it went under.
