1957 SHOPPING CAN BE FUN HILLSDALE MALL SAN MATEO, CA

Civic nationalism was alive and well when America was 90 percent white.

In this nostalgia video you’ll see heavy throngs of white shoppers turn out for car shows, art shows, fashions, food, carnivals, and more. Everyone dressed beautifully and all behaved nicely.

Enjoy.

Published on Jan 18, 2014

No, it’s not an instructional video on how to train husbands in “the joy of shopping,” but, rather, a promotional film for the Hillsdale Shopping Center in San Mateo, California.

The center’s former anchor store, Sears, closed in April, 2016.

  1. Loved the aerial views of the rows & rows of 1950’s cars in the opening scenes! That reminded me of modern “Antique Car Shows”… & then near the 6-minute mark, THEY SHOWED an “Antique Car Show Parade” of cars OLDER than the then-current 1957 models, lol!

    I saw a lady wearing “peddle-pushers” – calf-length slacks. I guess they had made a comeback after 40 years as I bought some of those in the 1990s. 🙂

    Loved their Farmer’s Market! Can you imagine all the great PRODUCE there must have been back then, all grown in USA & most of it no doubt local-California, & WITHOUT GMOs!!

    Each person manning each Farmer’s Market kiosk was “a specialist” in their product! Meaning, the good old days when people took pride in their work & actually KNEW about what they were selling!

    “…Ringling & other Big Tops folded in 1956…” – Hmm, well they folded again after 146 years in January 2017: http://nypost.com/2017/01/14/the-greatest-show-on-earth-will-shut-down-after-146-year-run/ 😦

    “…gay circus scene…” – was NOT referring to a “Gay Pride Parade”!

    “…Dad and HIS day…” – was NOT referring to a HOMO male couple!

      • Haha, thank you for correcting my spelling! Of course you are CORRECT. I must have gotten peddlers & pedals crossed. Maybe it is peddlers who wear “peddle-pushers,” lol! Or maybe peddler-petal-design-pedal-pushers (hippie attire of course).

        From the time I was a kid, I never had trouble spelling anything. Not so great in later years. A serious case of brain-rot has set in — Rapid Aging Syndrome (RAS) — from never sleeping good/being microwaved+vibrated to death for over three years now, but much worse in Summers due to the heat/humidity > more “juice”/intensity/amps in the power grid for ACs, etc.
        –All thanks to Obama dangling free money to utilities in Oct. 2009 for them to upgrade their systems to “Advanced Metering Infrastructure,” or AMI for short, the worst of the worst yet for Smart Meters/Grids, which the local utility took the Obama money & began upgrading in 2011, but it didn’t begin here until 2014.
        –AMI is two-way metering that not only radiates outward from the meter, but also goes inward with the microwaves riding along all the copper wiring in walls, ceilings, etc., vibrating the building at “…molecular and atomic levels at 1.8 billion times per measurable second,” per thermo-radiation expert Curtis Bennett (BC, CA).
        –The microwave radiation is at 900 MHz x 2 (polarizing & depolarizing) = 1.8 Billion oscillations per second.
        –It’s nothing short of torture, & I’m not the only one. Here’s just one site with several hundred testimonies going back a few years, though not everyone has the vibrations but they can hear the noise it makes which is also extremely miserable:

      • I don’t think you’re suffering from brain rot or anything like that. It’s just that the more writing we do the more mistakes we’re going to make.

        Re the smart meter issue, can you move your space as far away from the meter as possible. In my current location, the meters for this building are at the other end from me. However, there are meters on another building that are closer. I believe I have some sort of natural immunity to cell phone waves, etc.

        Have you heard of “gifting?” I can’t quite remember what it is but I think it may involve ameliorating the effects of radio waves.

      • Thank you, that was a gracious reply. 🙂

        They say young males are the most resistant to microwaves, & I just assume that’s due to more abundant testosterone levels because, they also say, that women, children, elderly, &/or people with disabilities are more likely to be affected by them.

        Maybe you’ve still got good hormones. 😉

        Being affected also depends on several other things:
        […]
        “A person’s ability to tolerate microwave signal-EMRs depends upon, in combination:
        –the age at which they are exposed,
        –signal strength,
        –duration of exposure,
        –proximity to the signals,
        –the number of cumulative exposures,
        –history of other toxic exposures,
        –and genetic variances.
        –People living with Lyme’s Disease and immune issues are also more susceptible to microwave radiation signals.”
        […]
        From a comment here:
        http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/canadian-doctors-speak-out-against-wifi-in-toronto-parks/

        Since you are home & online a lot, you probably do get plenty of exposure unless you are using wired-ethernet/safer.

        Also, I’ve read that some SmartGrid Infrastructure & the Smart Meters are worse than others, depends on the company who makes them, builds them, etc. Two of the companies that I’ve heard can be the worst are the very two that are here, Elster Smart Meters & Landis+Gyr’s Infrastructure. Lucky me!

        The buildings here are similar to what you describe. The meters are at the end of this building, but another building’s end with meters faces this one.

        Even with the meters for this building being at the end, the meter-pipes from there to everyone’s circuit breaker panels run underground as do the powerlines. There’s four more meter pipes for units down the way that run under this unit. There’s metal under the concrete floor, too, so it’s all interacting to make the floor vibrate (& the plumbing, etc.) Microwaves “interact with & are reflected off of metal” (per same expert Curtis Bennett) & are not “held in” by plastic meter pipes & can radiate through the ground up to 39 inches deep (per another expert-for-the-enemy/govt.+utilities in the British Columbia smart meter hearings a few years ago. Official court reporter transcripts at Bennet’s website, ThermoGuy.com).

        I’ve never heard of gifting as far as microwaves go, & I’ve read a ton of stuff the past few years about MW-RF & ELF, etc., but I will do a hunt for it to see what’s up with that. Some other good news (I hope), see below, & if I have posted this same info elsewhere on your blog previously, sorry about that! I only heard this below interview at the end of May, so maybe not…

      • Part.2 continued… & I hope it posts UNDER where I want it to…

        ~~~

        HELP IS ON THE WAY!

        Please feel free to save/share the below info with anyone you ever may hear from who is suffering from SmartMeter electro-pollution (& most people, if they are feeling sick, have NO IDEA that it is the Smart Meters making them sick. It took me FIVE MONTHS to figure it out because I thought it was either dredging somewhere causing the floor/bed/ME to vibrate; &/or it was an immediately nearby problem w/neighbors doing something weird. I had no idea at first it was a GLOBAL problem!).

        Another expert, on our side, an electrical+mechanical engineer, William Bathgate, up in Michigan, is the first person I’ve heard in three years who actually had good advice as to what SPECIFICALLY to do about it. I’m looking into the filters he suggested & waiting for when one brother comes to town again since he’s an electrician (but he’d never heard of EMFs until I told him about them!). He usually comes once a year since his wife died a few years ago, but he was just here last Nov. before this interview, so I need to hold out one more Summer-from-Hell.

        (And sorry for the all caps, below. These were my mad-rush-notes taken while listening to the interview which was easier to do in all caps.)

        ~~~

        William Bathgate Quote re What is Causing the Problems Exactly:
        […]
        EVEN IF YOU GET AN ANALOG OPT-OUT METER,
        2 REASONS PEOPLE ARE STILL GETTING SICK:

        1_PEOPLE FEEL THE [PULSED MICROWAVE] PULSING, EVEN WITH OPT-OUT METER; FEEL IN THEIR BODY A PULSE/PULSING; WHAT YOU ARE GETTING IS ALL THE SURROUNDING HOMES SENDING DATA, EVEN IF YOU DON’T HAVE A SMART METER.
        –IN MIDDLE OF METER BOX IS A GROUND WIRE, FOR SAFETY GROUND. SO EVERY TIME THAT THING [smart meter] FIRES UP, THERE’S A RADIATION EMISSION, A MAGNETIC FIELD THAT GOES THROUGH THAT COPPER WIRE TO GROUND; THEY/ALL UNITS FOR ALL HOMES/BLDGS. AROUND YOU, ARE ALL SENDING PULSES TO GROUND; SO THEY ARE BACKFEEDING(?) TO GROUND.
        –PEOPLE HAD TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES BECAUSE OF IT. YOU CAN’T REVERSE THE HEALTH DAMAGE, YOU CAN ONLY AVOID IT. ONCE YOU ARE ELECTROSENSITIVE, THERE’S NO GOING BACK.
        […]
        2_THE OTHER REASON PEOPLE ARE GETTING SICK:

        –THE OTHER THING THAT IS GOING ON IS THAT THE EMISSIONS FROM METERS, THERE’S AN FCC CLASSIFICATION CALLED “CONDUCTED EMISSIONS” (THESE ARE NOT THE PULSED-MW-RF RADIATION EMISSIONS).
        –THESE “CONDUCTED EMISSIONS” ARE THE RESULT OF THE SWITCHED-MODE-POWER-SUPPLY [SMPS] ON THE SMART METER &/OR THE OPT-OUT METER…
        –WHICH IS CREATING OSCILLATIONS & TRANSIENTS [“DIRTY ELECTRICITY”] ON YOUR INTERNAL POWER WIRES INSIDE YOUR HOME; WHICH TURNS YOUR ENTIRE HOME’S WIRING [IN ALL CIRCUITS ON OR OFF] INTO A RADIATING ANTENNA [SURROUNDING-YOU].
        –SOME PEOPLE SAY THIS IS WORSE THAN THE PULSING [me: both are terrible!!].
        […]

        Quote re How to Fix Problems 1 & 2 above:
        […]
        FIX FOR ABOVE PROBLEM #1:

        –BUY AN EMI GROUND FILTER MADE BY “ONFILTER” AT
        http://WWW.ONFILTER.COM, MODEL #GLE30-1:
        http://www.onfilter.com/products.html?s=GF30A
        –THIS PROVIDES A LINE FILTER ON THE GROUND LINE COMING INTO YOUR HOME.
        –PUT IT BETWEEN GROUND ROD & YOUR SERVICE BIN(?)
        –TO FIND OUT FOR CERTAIN WHETHER IT WILL WORK FOR YOU OR NOT, GO OUTSIDE (WHILE THE PULSING MAGNETIC FIELDS ARE STRONG), DISCONNECT THE GROUND WIRE FROM THE GROUND ROD & SEE IF YOU FEEL BETTER.
        –IT REMOVES 90% OF THE PROBLEM.
        –IT WILL NOT GET RID OF “DIRTY ELECTRICITY.”
        –IT ONLY PROVIDES [BLOCKING???] THE GROUND MAGNETIC FORCES THAT ARE SURROUNDING YOUR HOME & FROM ALL THE NEIGHBORS’ HOMES’ SMART METERS.
        –[WITH THE EMI GROUND FILTER], THE GROUND WIRE IS NO LONGER CAUSING RADIATION IN YOUR HOME.

        FIX FOR PROBLEM #2 ABOVE:

        –PUT EMI/EMC FILTERS ON THE POWER WIRES COMING INTO THE CIRCUIT PANEL.
        –SUGGESTIONS/OPTIONS WHERE TO BUY:

        –A) SCHAFFNER COMPANY, A FILTER USED FOR SOLAR PANEL INVERTERS THAT MEETS THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR FCC CLASS-B CERTIFICATION; THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR, FCC CLASS-B CERTIFICATION EMI/EMC FILTERS, POWER FILTERS, THIS MODEL WORKS PRETTY WELL FN2200, FULL POWER LINE CONDITIONER(?), NOT JUST THE CIRCUIT … UP TO 2500 AMPS:
        FN2200: http://www.schaffnerusa.com/products/part-family-index/

        –B) ANOTHER AVAILABLE OPTION IS FROM THIS COMPANY, THEY’VE BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME: ETS-LINDGREN, THEY MAKE A FULL HOUSE POWER LINE FILTER; HIRE ELECTRICIAN. CALL MAKE SURE, LRX OR LPRX FILTER, THEY WORK VERY WELL, THAT’S THE BEST ONE OUT THERE, BUT IT’S NOT CHEAP, $2,000! IT DOES WORK:
        –HOME: http://www.ets-lindgren.com/
        […]
        End Bathgate quoted interview/notes.

        I’m thinking, though, that in MULTI-UNIT BLDGS., that ALL units would need to install those filters in order to really stop it ALL from getting into any units. What do you think?

        Bathgate told of one lady who gave up & killed herself due to the relentless torture. These frequencies have been referred to by other experts as “Suicidal Frequencies.” Yes, they are THAT BAD.

        Re: PREVENTING SmartMeter FIRES, Bathgate also said:
        –HAVE METER REMOVED FROM BLDG. & PUT ELSEWHERE ON PROPERTY TO PREVENT BLDG. FIRE.
        –OR, COULD PUT A CIRCUIT BREAKER BETWEEN SMART METER & WHERE POWER COMES IN; BUT UTILITIES WON’T ALLOW, THEY ARE AFRAID OF CHEATERS STEALING ELECTRICITY.

        Bathgate also said for those who want to buck the utility & get an analog meter back on their home (& probably have to pay an “extortion fee” to the utility):
        –“BUY ANALOG METERS FROM HIALEAH METER COMPANY, HIALEAH, FLA; THEY HAVE MILLIONS OF THEM. UTILITIES WILL SAY THEY DON’T HAVE ANALOGS ANY MORE. NOT TRUE!”

        The Bathgate interview is still online, though the audio was really super lousy for at least half the interview (one hour):

        He also did one prior interview with Donna:

        PRIOR WILLIAM S. BATHGATE INTERVIEW of 3/27/17:
        Re-aired last time on 7/17/17:

        Three points he discussed in that one:
        1_Billing Errors, Why, & How Smart Meters cause billing increases.
        2_Security/Not Secure Smart Meters/Hacking.
        3_Memphis has ELSTER Smart Meters (same here!): SMART METERS ARE COMPUTERS. ALL COMPUTERS ARE REQUIRED BY FCC’S “CONDUCTED EMISSIONS” CODE TO HAVE CLASS-B CERTIFICATION, BUT SMART METERS DO NOT!!

        The End!

      • Sob, have you seen “Better Ask Saul” a spin off from “Breaking Bad”?
        The lawyers dad is an unlikable arsehole who wears a tinfoil costume non stop inside his house. He bans mobile phones, electricity etc from his proximity. Did the producers get big money from the mobile phone/wifi/electricity/TV industry to ridicule those that expose the dangers?

      • Hi Robert, thanks for the info!

        I’ve never seen either of those TV programs, but I had heard that some guy in some TV show sleeps in an EMF-shielded sleeping bag. Maybe that was in one of those programs you mentioned.

        As for their motives, I think it could be two-fold:

        1. Predictive Programming > Telling people what they are REALLY doing, but at the same time… >

        2. Using MOCKING of those who are AWAKE to the REALity of the problem, so everyone else will “stay asleep” longer.

        ~~~

        Regarding #1 above, I’ve read many times over the years that those who are part of the “control grid/NWO/globalism” goals, are also occultists/Luciferians (or whatever you want to call them) who live by their “satanic doctrine” that IF THEY TELL WHAT THEY ARE DOING or ARE GOING TO DO, then they are GUILT-FREE from any consequences. Hence, for every evil that they have planned for the world, they embed BIG “HINTS” of it in media, TV, movies, etc. People have been noticing such hints for a long time. There have been lots of youtubes made over the years of people pointing out such things in movies, TV shows, etc.

        ONE EXAMPLE re “then future” Smart Meters/Smart Grid, that I found early on when I began researching all this EMF crap in latter 2014, was this comment:

        Mark F on July 9, 2014 at 11:59 pm:
        […]
        “Is it possible modern architecture is building structures designed to amplify frequencies in the 50-56hz range? Remember Ghostbusters? [movie released 1984]. The BUILDING where Sigourney Weaver’s character LIVED was described by Dan Akroyd’s character as A HUGE SUPER-CONDUCTING ANTENNA.”
        […]
        Comment was under this article (which was more about the “mystery noise” many are hearing vs. the Smart Grid):
        http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/a-mysterious-sound-is-driving-people-insane-its-spreading-and-nobody-knows-whats-causing-it/#comment-189771

        What that scene in the 1984 Ghostbusters movie described is exactly what Smart Meters do. They use the (usually-made-of) copper wall+ceiling wiring (a/k/a “conductors”) as a Huge ANTENNA wrapped around you in every room.

        It’s on my To Do List to someday go find/watch that movie to save a video clip of that exact scene.

        As for the 50-56Hz “noise,” the North American electric grid is 60Hz. When the higher Microwave Frequencies are imposed UPON it via Smart Meters, those two frequencies combined then create FOUR frequencies. I have an expert’s quote about that 2 = 4 somewhere.
