Entertainment legend Phyllis Diller (1917-2012) officiated at the dedication of ARCADE SQUARE, held in May 1980. The turn-of-the-century complex had been renovated into an inner-city shopping and dining venue.

This photo I actually took myself! It is a circa-1983 view of the great Rotunda at ARCADE SQUARE, showing its three levels and glass-enclosed elevator. The first two floors were dedicated to retail and restaurants. The third, comprised of office spaces, was cleared of tenants in 1977 and never reoccupied.
