Air Show: Laurel Shopping Center, 1975

Can you imagine an air show being performed at Laurel Shopping Center? It actually happened in 1975, and by the looks of these fantastic shots by John Floyd II, the show was a big success—both in crowd turnout and the perfect landing by the Firestone Precision Parachute Team.

The Giant Food sign—which is still in use today—does look a bit younger in this  photo, yet surreal beneath the overflying trio of red biplanes.

In the images below, we get a glimpse of The Hecht Co. (the original building and signage), Laurel Cinema, and Equitable Trust bank.
