Reality Check

  • Claim:

    A book to memorialize Toronto's Galleria Mall with captioned photographs plus fascinating shopping mall content.

  • Reality:

    The mall is still open, so please note that these images are not taken from a historic perspective, but instead as recently as 2013 and 2014. Although the Galleria represents nostalgia, there may be missed opportunity of true documentation, unless the book includes pictures from all decades.

Bottom Line

The idea of documenting a historic local establishment is always a welcomed undertaking. With this Galleria campaign, the campaign may miss several opportunities to document the Galleria in its entirety by primarily focusing on images taken in the last 10% of the lifespan.
