Try to identify each shopping center from the old photo, then see what they look like now! One is basically unchanged but I had to think hard to figure out where it is. Another is barely recognizable today though the structure is evident in the current pic. The third, well, you’d only know it if you lived in Charlotte in the 1970s. Current photos (and captions) provide the answers!
