Merchandising meccas and other commercial curiosities. Our exhibits range from the early 20th to early 21st centuries.
Here we see an aerial plan of the two SOUTH COAST PLAZA malls. The original complex, completed in 1967 and expanded between 1972-1979 and in 1986 and 2000, is seen on the right. Its CRYSTAL COURT / SOUTH COAST PLAZA WEST annex (1986) occupies the upper left corner of the photo. Photo from www.bing.com
Another Bing's-eye view, this time zeroing in on SOUTH COAST PLAZA WEST. The Bridge of the Gardens, a pedestrian-only connecting conduit, was built between February 1999 and September 2000. Photo from www.bing.com
