OMG! Thanks for posting this picture. My mom and dad were friends with this guy, I believe his name was John, when I was a kid. We used to always go and listen to them play Jazz & eat Pizza. He & his partner the piano player, I believe his name was Buddy, partly inspired my love for music. Some of my best childhood memories, Thanks again...

I remember working at a little sandwich place called Concoctions there at McCreles Mall. I was a sophmore in high school. Wow that was 33 yrs ago. Boy that makes me sound old.

My dad designed the old McCreless mall as one of his first jobs in San Antonio, not too long after he earned his architects license. I am putting together a book of my dad's buildings ...and recently found a photo of the model of the mall. My dad is William Glenn Rucker, and he is 87 now!

I don't know if this will work! Here is the model of the old McCreless mall.

I wish I had some photos of the Old McCreless mall. I have really fond childhood memories about going to that mall as a kid and later as a teen. Thanks for sharing the photo.

That is pretty neat, did your dad design any other buildings in town?

What a beautiful building which I actually got to enter a few times before it was torn down. Cannot believe we replaced that for a Whataburger! That is not the mall btw but the village just south of the mall.

So where exactly was Piggly Wiggly at in relation to this model?

These are the only tenents that I can remember right now. I believe Toy Box was the previous tenent where Teen Town was. Teen Town was there in the late sixties. I just remembered, there was also an all you can eat Mexican Resturant in between the Piggly Wiggly and Teen Town/ Toy Box locations. The name escapes me at the moment but they had several locations and were in business until a few years ago. They may even still have some stores somewhere. They had a little flag on a flag pole at the table and you would raise the flag to alert the staff that you would like something else.

Default You,

Are still a squirt in my book, even though you worked at McCreeless Mall
33 years ago.
But, to kids you are ancient, methusela. It is all relative.

Default The Model,

Looks the same was as I remember it looked, except much smaller.
