A physical layout of Melbourne's "compact city in the suburbs". Among its one hundred and five tenants were six "mini-major" ("junior anchor" as we say in the USA) stores. The Dickens Supermarket, at its north end, did not have an entrance onto the main mallway until one was retrofitted, in 1967. This was also when a partial enclosure, made of fibreglass panels, was installed over the mall concourse.
