Sunrise Shopping Center

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida - 1950's

I love this unique view! Almost looks like a split-screen shot at first glance, but it isn't. It's one whole shot! Beautiful. Doesn't look like this anymore, though. The Sunrise Shopping Center was a two-level outdoor shopping complex originally, but was enclosed and redeveloped in 1980, emerging as the new, Galleria Mall, from then on. Here's their current website.

Very cool! I don't think I've ever seen a shopping built in a two level form like that. Mall's are built similar to that today with the first floor kinda being underground. I didn't know some shopping centers are/were built like that.

Two things about this photo:

1. That logo design is way cool and contemporary...looks modern.

2. If I had a time travel machine [with lots of storage], I'd most likely use it and head straight for this store.

Does anyone remember the ramp you could run down to the front doors of Jordan Marsh, with that beautiful lily pond off to the left? I miss 60s 70s 80s Fort Lauderdale..but the goddamn transplants swarmed in and starting wrecking my hometown 😡 I left in 94 and never saw it again😢😢😢
