Shopping Spree – Part 4

Time again to visit the yesteryear’s shopping experience. Here are some fresh assorted postcards from two different shopping centers in Sweden, one from Stockholm and the other one from Gothenburg.

I have only visited the latter a couple of times, and it is still there – but it looks slightly different today (as many other things from the past).

    Wow love your pictures, didn’t think anyone from Sweden would be interested in the 1950’s-1960’s! Keep it up :)

    Ugh i hate the 80’s, style really sucks, don’t even start with the music, most horrible decade ever, MY opinion. Do you have MSN? Mine’s on my blogger thing…

    Love Gothenburg. How does it look today?

    Bigmallrat, looked good. It has remained quite close to its original look until I visited it the last time, about 10 months ago, they were renovating the place then. I remember the shopping center from when I was a kid, always thought it was huge. Still think it’s the largest shopping center in Sweden.
