International Malls: Yorkdale Shopping Centre


Toronto, Ontario, Canada - circa 1960s

The Yorkdale Shopping Centre (aka Yorkdale Mall) was such a groovy shopping mall at one time! This retro postcard proves it. Every photo I see of it I love. (I'm talking about the vintage Yorkdale Shopping Centre, of course.) Looks like it was one heck of a swanky shopping destination back then.

Yea it does. In the picture in the top lefthand corner, what is it that is curving around? Staircase?

I wonder what year that picture was taken. I worked at Yorkdale mall in the late 70's early 80's...and it looked just like that. Now it's totally expanded, but to me it will always be the same old Yorkdale.
