Nov. 1960 - the "new" Lincoln Road debuts

In 1960 shopping malls were a relatively new idea. In an editorial on Nov. 29, 1960, The Miami News called the new Lincoln Road Mall a "laboratory."

Three days earlier on Nov. 26, the "new" Lincoln Road - designed by architect Morris Lapidus - had been dedicated.

But in 1983, the mall's better days were behind it.
