  I visted the DixieSquare.com site, interesting read, espically about the flag pole sitter who fell to his death minutes before his stunt was finished. But are there any other sites you can recommend of people exploring this site?

  It just kind of blows your mind for a building to stand still in time for that long. But when it's a mall, the more incredible it is.

  The dude who took this photo says it's an old record store, and he found an LP copy of "We're an American band" by GFR under a fixture!

  I've heard stories about what stores like Target will find under their "basedecks", aka their bottom shelves when remodeling the stores. Old toys still in their package from the 80s, etc. Hid there usually by collectors so they can come back later and buy them. I did that with toys my mom wouldn't buy me, but I hid them behind other toys a few aisles down.

  When I worked at Zellers (Canada's version of Target) in 1992 we found audio cassettes from 1979 under some counters that hadn't moved since the 70's when it was a Towers store, long before the 1991 takeover by Zellers.

  I worked for a Target for 3 years. Everything is located in the stockroom, you scan barcodes when backstocking, so the computer knows where to send you to get an item to push to the floor. My Target wasn't very old, maybe 5 years, but as with all systems, there were things that fell through. So it was still suprising to find merchandise from 2 summers ago back there. I can't imagine what they found at the older location when it was remodeled, or even the oldest local Target which closed.

  Check out this site too: http://www.barraclou.com/memorial/dixie/index.html

There are pix from 1989 when the mall still looked salvageable.

  This is Dixie's old Walden book store in Block D.

There is a Walden in Wisconsin that has never been remodeled and it looks like how this store used to:

  Our Waldenbooks closed. =(

This mall seems really cool. If I wasn't so far away I'd like to see it.
