International Malls: Place Ste-Foy Shopping Centre

Quebec, Canada - 1965

ld multi-view postcard of the positively retro-beautiful Place Ste-Foy Shopping Centre in Quebec, Canada, back in the mid-sixties--when it still looked this Swinging (it doesn't today, in case you were wondering), before its many makeovers and modernizing over the ensuing years. Check the huge birdcage there in the bottom picture!

Below are links to my previous entries on this cool Canadian mall (or Shopping Centre, as they like to refer to it), which was originally built in 1958. Here's Place Ste-Foy's current website (which I can't read).

Interesting shape for a birdcage.

It is better than any Star Trek set.
Why could they not let cool enough alone?

I love the metal sculptures in this place. Reminds me of Sunvalley Mall in Concord, CA. Of course, the giant birdcages are worthy of recognition.
Ah, the days of fancy artwork and squawking birds being reason enough to visit a mall.
