Editors Note: We are back to business, as usual, today after last weeks shut down for general site maintenance. Thanks go out to all of our readers for your patience and comments about The Old Motor while this work was being accomplished.
The featured image is a late-1960s view of a section of the parking lot capable of handling up to seven-thousand cars at the Cinderella City Shopping Mall located in Englewood, Colorado. The City is situated about five miles south of Denver, the State Capitol of Colorado. The Shopping Mall (the first one to be established in the area) opened for business on March 7, 1968, and was very successful until other Malls were built and opened in the 1970s and ’80s. The increased competition led to a general decline in business and loss of tenants at Cinderella City in the 1980s and ’90s. It closed for good in 1997 and was later demolished in 1999.
