Photos taken on December 24, 2007 of the Baldwin Hills Shopping Mall. The Albertsons Sav- on Supermarket was originally a Lucky Sav-on Supermarket that was built around the same time as the Baldwin Hills Shopping Mall was built around 1988. The Lucky Sav-on Supermarket converted into an Albertsons Sav-on Supermarket after Albertsons took over Lucky Supermarkets. In 2006, Albertsons remodeled this Supermarket, the first time since 1988 (approximately). It is located near the new Macy*s (former Robinsons May).

 

The Baldwin Hills Shopping Mall replaced two aging shopping centers that contained The Broadway Department Store and The May Co Department Store. The original Crenshaw Center opened around 1947. All the shops surrounding the two Department stores were demolished, except for a few along the border that contained an IHOP Restauant, Baskin Robbins and a few other shops. The two Department Stores were originally separated by Santa Barbara Ave that is now known as Martin Luther King Blvd. A bridge was built between the two Department Stores and The Baldwin Hills Shopping Mall was built on the portion of the lot behind The Broadway. This area was originally shops including The Broadway Tire Center, The Broadway Restaurant, Vons Supermarket, Sav On Drug Store, Karls Toys, Security Pacific Bank, Woolworths as well as other misc. stores, and restaurants. Also the area included a giant open air parking lot. When the mall was opened in 1988, Sears Department Store was also added, which replaced Sears Pico and Sears Inglwood.

 

The Broadway Department Store Chain was taken over by Macy*s, which operated a Macy*s for about three years when they suddenly closed down the store. The former Broadway/Macy*s building sat vacant for a couple of years until Wal Mart renovated the store into a multi level Wal Mart Department Store. The May Co Department Store became a Robinsons May in 1993 when May Department Stores combined their Robinsons and May Co. Stores. In 2006, Macy*s took over Robinsons May and converted this store to Macy*s, bringing Macy*s back to this shopping center. This mall also contains several small stores, restaurants, including McDonalds, plus a TJ Maxx Store. One of xx photos of this shopping center located in the Crenshaw Area on Crenshaw at Martin Luther King Blvd. Southern California.

Skylight looking out at the former Broadway Department Store, now Walmart. The Broadway Crenshaw letters were originally embedded on the wall near the roof and could be seen from this skylight. Both Macy*s had and now Walmart has signs with lettering to the left of this skylight.

The word is someone has a deathwish and shot at a patroling L. A. County Sheriff's car off of Crenshaw on some side street. Don't know the rest of the story. LAPD & L.A. Unified School Dist. Police gave back up.

This image is for the Halloween photo challenge URBAN LEGENDS in the MacabreDolls

group (on deviantart)

 

I chose the urban legend Molly Crenshaw which is actually a local one.

 

She has two distinct stories. One is that Molly Crenshaw was a witch that lived in St. Charles MO. A particularly horrible harvest season caused the villagers to blame Molly (who was a suspected witch). They banded together to kill her. They raised up with torches and pitch forks and drug the woman out into the street were they executed her by dismembering her into five parts. Each part was buried in a separate graves. The first legend says that every year those parts move closer and closer together trying to find each other in the ground.

 

The second legend is that Molly Crenshaw was a local St. Charles woman who possibly lost a child. In her grief she committed suicide in her home only to be unceremonially buried in the woods surronding them in an unmarked grave. The legend says that if you are in her woods near her grave site (or possible house) you will often see her ghostly form floating about in search of the child she lost. I went with that legend over the buried pieces.

 

I liked the idea of having her floating in the picture. I was also inspired by Silent Hill ghosts in The Room. The way they burn through walls and leave slightly scorched black marks in their wake when passing through walls or fences.

 

So here is my Urban Legends image. Thanks for looking.

I used Thadie (my bimong narae) as Molly.
