PHOTO ESSAY

Cinderella City was the largest mall west of the Mississippi, and it was right in our backyard. Englewood’s famed megastructure was short-lived, and photographer Ron Pollard roamed the vacant property with his lens just before its demise. This photo essay is one of a kind; grab an issue to see the haunting images and a flashback from when Cinderella City was in its prime.

 

Enjoy!
