Inside Metcalf South Dead Mall Demolition
For the Kansas City late night and so many of our shift worker denizens who toil valiantly amid the decline of American industry amid growing division betwixt rich and poor . . . An impressive clip of a local landmark nearly demolished on its grand opening anniversary . . .
"The demolition of Metcalf South Mall continues, and Thursday marks the shopping center's 50th anniversary. A popular online source gets the last look inside the old mall, which stood for five decades at 95th and Metcalf Ave.
"Metcalf South Mall has been a fixture in Johnson County since LBJ was in the White House. Famed photographer Seph Lawless, notable for his series on abandoned American shopping malls, was the final photographer inside the old mall, snapping video and a series of photos in April, just before the deconstruction began. As of Thursday, the Sears store at the mall's south end is all that remains intact. The rest is surrounded by fences, having been gutted by demolition equipment."
