Inspired by the overwhelming enthusiasm of our members and visitors who loved our Shoppers World roundtable, this exhibition will feature images, merchandise, and memorabilia that will be sure to bring you back to this “kinder, gentler shopping center.”
The country’s first mall east of the Rockies included the iconic Jordan Marsh dome anchoring 44 original stores with an interior courtyard that served as a cultural stage and community gathering spot for more than 40 years. Promoters of this new mall were right out of “Mad Men,” coming up with ingenious ways to bring shoppers from all over New England to this cutting edge retail mecca – or as one planner called it “an opportunity for a re-creation of community spirit.
Exhibition open Wednesday – Saturday 1:00-4:00 pm until September 30, 2013 at the Edgell Memorial Library, 3 Oak Street, Framingham.
Admission is $5/person; free for members and children under age 10.
Arrangements can me made for groups by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special new member rate of $19.51 is offered throughout the duration of the exhibition!
