Lloyd Center Mall Open-Air Interior

Portland, Oregon - photos August 8, 1962

More vintage looks today, at the center court promenade in the Lloyd Center shopping mall (before it was fully enclosed many years later), including that groovy winding staircase, which I've showcased in previous Lloyd Center posts (especially this one, and this one).

And here are a few Wikipedia notes regarding the mall's original major anchor store lineup, in case anyone's curious about that:
"The original anchor stores were Meier & Frank at the center, Lipman & Wolfe anchoring the west end, and JC Penney and Woolworth anchoring the east. Nordstrom initially opened as shore store in 1963, before expanding into a full-line apparel store incrementally in the mall's west wing."
