'70s Easter at Lloyd Center

Portland, Oregon - circa late '70s

hat's Easter without a shopping mall Easter Bunny photo, right? Only way to sweeten that deal is when it's one from the 1970s, and it's from Lloyd Center mall! That's just about everything you need right there. It's everything I need at any rate. Save maybe a chocolate bunny and colored egg, of course.

The groovy snapshot above, comes courtesy of, Meegan Blue, and is an old family photo taken at Lloyd Center, around 1977 or 1978.
"...I do know that we were at the Lloyd Center. Nowadays it's just a regular, enclosed, everyday mall, but back then it looked like this. Oh, if only they had embraced its open-air Mid Century coolness and left it alone, just think of the fun we'd have!"
Amen, Meegan.

Finally, allow me to take this opportunity to wish everyone out there who's observing it, a very Happy Easter! To those who aren't, hey, Happy Sunday! :)

PS: Don't forget, the Easter Bunny's in that 1986 Universal Mall Boat Show video I shared here recently.

This is a very cute photo. I remember Easter Sundays getting colorful eggs from families who celebrated it.
