Corner store

In its heyday this corner store at Maylands would probably have had people standing out the front chatting with local friends after purchasing goods. Today this shop is being used as a private residence, and the people in front are listening to stories of the past.

There were corner stores like this one, built in 1884, all around Adelaide's suburbs. With the advent of supermarkets most of these have since closed.
