Summary/Review: Since 1972, Galleria Mall has functioned as a shopping mall at the corner of Dufferin and Dupont Streets in Toronto’s west end. Now, in 2019, plans are in place for the mall’s demise, as it will be demolished to make room for a mixed-used development. In Galleria: The Mall That Time Forgot, captioned photographs of the mall’s recent past encapsulate the mall’s structure and atmosphere, highlighting the important role the mall has played in its community. Historical content on the Galleria and its site allows for a view of Toronto’s changing landscape. Additional information on the rise and fall of the shopping mall puts the Galleria in the context of malls worldwide. In memorializing the Galleria, with both humour and sadness, the book takes a look at just one pocket of Toronto that could be easily overlooked. The rise and fall of Galleria Mall mirrors the rapid development of Toronto. With grace, humour, and nostalgia, Shari Kasman’s homage to Galleria Mall reminds us the spaces in which malls occupy can be more than just a place to consume goods — community, friendships, and culture can blossom.
