topanga plaza: let's get retro
I recently fell in love with a hidden gem of a blog called Malls of America, a site that advertises itself as a treasure trove of "vintage photos of lost shopping malls of the '60s and '70s." And boy, does this site deliver.
For instance, look what we dug up here:
A significant portion of my childhood was spent here, although I don't recall the Topanga Mall looking quite as marvelous as this. Those cyllindrical tubes must have been taken out before I first cruised through in a stroller. What a fine display of Brady Bunch-era chic. More on Topanga can be found here.
