List Rules Vote up the photos that most perfectly encapsulate that '80s vibe.

If you're old enough to remember what malls were like in the '80s, this list is going to cause you to have some feelings. The candid, old photos of malls below capture a very specific time in America, when big hair, bleached jeans, mullets, and cigarettes - so many cigarettes - were the norm, and the mall was the place to be.

There's a dream-like quality to these photos of 1980s shopping malls that's hard to describe. Maybe it's the absence of cell phones or earbuds? Or the smoking in public, in front of kids? It all seems so unreal now. If you lived through it, prepare to be transported: the nostalgia levels on this one are off-the-charts. Vote up your favorite vintage mall photos that really take you back to the '80s.
