Westward Expansion

Westland Shopping Center cactus sign on West Broad Street in Henrico, VA.

The Westland Shopping Center was built in what used to be the “Far West End” on West Broad Street back in 1963, and boy does that sign place the strip mall marvelously in that decade. I know being way out in the counties was considered the hinterlands at the time, but a saguaro cactus? Hilarious. Anyway, this was shot on Kodak E100 slide film with my Hasselblad 500 C/M.
