Lake Air Shopping Center

Waco, Texas

For some reason, I just love the inside of this mall--sparse and pukey-colored as it may look! To me it's a thing of pure beauty. Wish I were there right now, the day this photo was taken. '60s or '70s.

Thanks, one man! I will do my best. I'm holding a few back simply so I don't overwhelm anyone! LOL

Anyway, as always, I appreciate your visit and nice comments!

I miss the Lake Air Mall... I believe it was the first indoor mall in Texas.

Now it's a strip mall with a huge Target.

That is such a good picture of the mall.
Lake Air Mall was just a mile or so from my home growing up .
I think we were both born the same year 1962. What memories I have .
I went home for a short period in 2000 and watched it get torn down . I couldn't believe it .

I remember Lake Air Mall. It's been years since I was in Waco, and I didn't know it had been torn down. Wow...

Went one or two times in the mid sixties when my sister was getting ready to go to The University of Texas. It was a thrill for me to get to see Lake Air and it seemed so glamorous to a ten year old. I can't believe it is gone.

This was probably taken in the late 70's or early 80's. Richland Mall took all the business away from Lake Air Mall. I was in Waco during the final days and the mall was nearly empty. So sad.

Now Ridgeland Mall is on its' downward slope due to the HUGE outdoor mall by the interstate-- Central Texas Marketplace! It was built in 2004 and added to this year.
