Now we begin a series of black & white Polaroid shots that were taken by the Sangamon County Assessor's Office in 1977. These show WHITE OAKS MALL as it looked when brand new. Here, we see the mallway entrance of the Myers Brothers anchor. This nameplate was short lived, being replaced by a Bergner's trademark in 1983.
