The open air court and the hallways of Square One in 1974
Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga has gone through a few changes over the decades since it first opened it’s doors in the early 70s
Check out the hallways, decor and the open air court that Square One once had:
Here’s an event going on at the open air court they had at Square One in 1974. This is where food central would be now. If you look closely, you will see a gazebo with the sign that says Caravan 1974 which was the Toronto equivalent of Carassauga.
Another shot of an event going on at the open air court. This court turned into an ice rink in the winter time. Too bad they got rid of this court.

Here are shots of people going about their day to day business at Square One in 1974.
This is the hallway just outside Hudson's Bay on the second floor towards Wal-Mart. This picture is of the board of directors of the McLaughlin Group, the developer that made Square One.
This is the hallway where you would see Jean Machine and Garage just outside Hudson's Bay today.
Here is another shot of the north west hallway. You have to love the orange tiles which they only got rid of the last decade.
