The 'New' Sugar Land Shopping Center, 1952

I've posted various photos of the old shopping center before, but I thought I'd collect them plus a few more items into an album. I thought this would give a better idea of what it looked like in the 'olden days.'

We start with an invitation to the opening on January 24th, 1952. Notice there was a jewelry store. I assume it was in the back near the elevator & stair well - in the office eventually housing the insurance agency. I don't remember it at all.

The first link takes you to an album of photos, most from the 1950s, but a few from the 1960s.

This last link takes you to a short video of the shopping center during the 1950s. My thanks to Tommy Laird for posting it.
