Holyoke Mall, Massachusetts, 1982

That’s a lot of wood paneling. I’m getting warm just looking at it.

The store directory is fun, yet kind of sad. Kaybee Toys is long gone, as are B. Dalton and Waldenbooks, Record Town. I thought Radio Shack was gone too, but they’re still hanging on—somehow. I worked various mall jobs in high school, and I remember all those weird cheese and specialty grocery stores—Hickory Farms, etc.

The Gap is listed under “Specialty Fashion”? Was it that cutting edge in ’82?
