Mall Sign: Midway Mall

Sand Island, Midway Atoll, Hawaii

Midway Mall sign at Sand Island, on Midway Atoll (also known as Midway Island), Hawaii, snapped in 1999 by Forest & Kim Starr. Because even the smallest and most humble of places must have a mall--though this one's more for the birds these days.

"Midway Mall" isn't really an actual shopping mall in reality, but the sign says that (and it is called that), and since I like the shot, I thought it'd be fun to post here in a quasi "sort of related" kind of way. Midway Mall is an area in the center of the island that once catered to Navy families, but is now largely abandoned. It has a tiny general store, some offices, a bowling alley, and a theater (where Bob Hope once appeared).

Give it a couple years. Some overzealous developer will find a way to turn it into an open-air Lifestyle Town Center. Or a Wal-Mart, take your pick.
