Vintage Postcards: Eastridge Mall

A vintage postcard of Eastridge Mall, complete with the ubiquitous Jarman.

In the rear you can see Liberty House.

The back of the postcard reads "The "Grand Court" area of the Eastridge regional shopping center in San Jose, California, features modern shaped plexiglass information booth and a spectacular sculpture in steel by the world famous sculptress, Stephanie Scuris. The center, which is constructed on three levels, boasts four major department stores and 146 other stores."


See the current aerial.

I have a sense of deja vu.

Hasn't this been seen before?

Looks like it, but no. It's an updated postcard of an earlier vantage point. The earlier card is also here.

Liberty House and a 'sculptress.' What's not to love? :-) Great retro posting!

This is a terrific postcard and it's so interesting to see someone specializing in malls!
I wonder if you would permit me to link to this postcard in the next issue of A Festival of Postcards. It's dedicated to SIGNS, and there are no entries yet with inside signs as you have here.
If you would like to see the last issue of the Festival before joining in, then you can do so over here:
if you decide to participate you should just let me know and I'll take care of the registration for you.
Have a good day,
Evelyn in Montreal
