Bangor Mall Under Construction

With all the news about the demise of shopping malls, it’s interesting to look back at the history of one of Maine’s malls. This aerial photograph from the Sewall Company Aerial Photographs Collection shows the Bangor Mall construction site on November 1, 1977. The Mall opened the following year in October of 1978.
