Powers Department Store at Highland Village Shopping Center
Exterior of the Powers "Highland" department store that was once located in the Highland Village Shopping Center. As this is more of a strip mall shopping plaza and not an enclosed mall, I'll dispense with the usual "mall" info summary at the bottom of this post (as I usually do with these), but I did uncover that this little strip mall first opened (very humbly) in 1939, and was then appreciably expanded throughout the '40s and '50s.
Highland Village Shopping Center, which it appears is still around, doesn't seem to maintain a website, but that's OK. This one's simply about this great picture--and that classy store logo! (Which can also be seen in my Knollwood Plaza entry.)
