A vintage view of the Lower Mall level, which was accessed from a set of escalators seen far in the background. This subterranean floor hosted services such as a Veterinary Clinic, Pets Parking Lot pet-minding centre, Children's Day Nursery child-minding centre and Kiddieland. This attraction included small fry amusements, such as fiberglass Thunderbird racing cars, swan rides and mini-helicopters. Photo from State Library of Victoria
