    Love the 1950s cars in #5 and some of the outfits in #4.
    1960s architecture, however, makes me want to vomit.
    The Sharpstown shopping center mall in Houston (#20) reminds me quite a bit of the stores my family used to visit when I was kid in the early 1970s. Good post nonetheless.

    Re: 1st postcard shown – so that’s where the CLASH got their cover. BTW, spent many a desperate weekend roaming the halls of Chris-Town Shopping Center in Phoenix, Az.

    I live near three of the places in the postcards. All defunct, although a major casino is now being built on the grounds of the old Concord resort. Not that it will help our region’s economy, though folks around here think it will.
