Vintage Postcards: Eastridge Mall
Here is a rare Eastridge Mall postcard showing the view towards JCPenney from the Sears court.
The back of the postcard reads: "Eastridge Shopping Center, the largest in the West, is a shopper's paradise comprising over 160 shops and four major department stores under one roof. The three climate controlled levels are unique in their bold design. Capitol Expressway, Tully, and Quimby Roads, San Jose, California."
As a recipient of this postcard, after reading the description, I'd flip over the card to look at the picture and ask "what three levels?" Maybe this is a "collect them all" situation.
Some of the stores featured in this postcard is The Clothes Barn with Singer just below it. You can see Jarman in the center court, whch is seen prominently from the Sears court (a feature of Taubman malls, inline shops have high visibility).
See the current aerial.
