  • Notes

    • On August 2, 1992, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reprinted some historical facts about shopping malls, to celebrate the opening of the Mall of America the next week. Their entry for 1947: "Shopping center promotional extravaganzas abound. Groundbreaking festivities for Town and Country Shopping Center in Columbus, Ohio include a death-defying high dive into a burning pool by Grandma Ella Carver." - Suzanne (2005)

      Paraphrased from the net: "Constant promotions were considered essential to the success of the early shopping centers, such as Town & Country Shopping Center which opened in 1949 in suburban Whitehall, Ohio, east of Columbus. Shows and activities to entertain children, such as Grandma Carver, a high-dive artist who would plummet more than 100 feet into a 5' water tank topped with flaming oil, also served as ways to persuade parents and grandparents to visit the centers." - Suzanne (2005)
