Monroeville Shopping Center, Monroeville, Pa.

Monroeville Shopping Center, Monroeville, Pa.
Parked over at the Incredibly Boring Postcards group.

Printed on the back of this postcard: "The beautiful Monroeville Shopping Center, Monroeville, Penna."

The Monroeville Shopping Center, known today as the Miracle Mile Shopping Center, was situated just a couple of miles away from the location of the later Monroeville Mall, where George Romero filmed his cult horror film Dawn of the Dead.

The Golden Age of Consumerism. I would love to be able step into every store in the shopping center, starting with Kresge's.

I actually spent many an evening walking along this miracle mile as a child with my parents. I would also go here to spend my birthday money. Everybody thought it was a very great place to go.

I scanned for our 51 green two-tone Chevy in the parking lot, but I didn't see it.

Thanks for all the comments! I, too, wish I had a time machine to check out these stores. My family lived in Monroeville for a time when I was very young. I didn't spot my dad's '56 Chevy in the parking lot, either. 8-)

I think i just died a little (out of happiness and out of longing to step into this card for a few hours).
