A latter-day shot of the mall's skating rink, which was originally known as the Ice Capades Chalet. By the time this photo was taken, its multi-colored -and lighted- ceiling had been removed and its name shortened to simply Ice Chalet. Photo from Wikipedia / Steve Parrott
The third anchor of the shopping complex. It operated, as a Baton Rouge-based Wilson's Catalog Showroom, between 1982 and 1985. The store then became a Nashville-based Service Merchandise. Photo from http://www.mallofmemphis.org
