Show all series level scope and content notes
The Westland Shopping Center collection primarily consists of the records of the mall during the 1990s and 2000s, although some material related to its opening date in the 1960s. Two VHS videocassettes, produced during the 1990s, provide a history of the J.L. Hudson company. Also included are pamphlets and brochures, certificates, and an issue of a magazine documenting the building and opening of the mall from 1965.
Photographs and photo albums from the 1990s and 2000s make up the bulk of the collection, depicting employees taking part in company events and performing typical job duties. The oversize volume contains photographs of staff members at Hudson company events, while an oversize framed item features a group staff photograph from the 1990s. The oversize folder houses posters with pictures of Christmas time at Westland Shopping Center which would always attract many visitors.
