Cherry Hill Mall

Cherry Hill, New Jersey - circa 1960's

On The Mall at Cherry Hill! A portion of Woolworth's is visible on the right, in this cool interior shot.

I dig all the foliage here, the gaudy yellow beams, and also the way the natural sunlight is streaming through the skylights above, dancing across the floor (I think those are skylights, as it certainly looks like natural light coming in). Cherry Hill Mall was absolutely swankastic in the early days!

PS: Blogger has been down for maintenance for a while today, if you couldn't access MOA earlier. Besides that, things have still been very funky (not groovy) with the service the past day (continuing on the problems that I mentioned began on Friday). Fun. Hopefully it will finally start settling down now and playing nice.

PSS: Go Tigers!!! (please)

Did the striped sunroof on the right of the picture belong to a restaurant? Cause it gives off a certain sidewalk café vibe, particularly with the trees in front of it.

Wow talk about memory lane...... I used to go there with my mom & grandmother when I was a kid. I remember the birds and the large indoor trees etc. A fond memory of the lunch counter at Woolworths, where you could "POP" a balloon and get a bannana split for a penny to a dollar!!! Thanks for the pleasant memories! Oh, and, DANG! Tigers lost! UGH! HA

Wow. I also remember visiting this mall with my mom and grandmother when I was a kid. Ironically as well, I was a sales associate at Babbage's there in the late 1980's. Good times!
