Exploring photos with Jim Smith: Connolly's Corner
 Jim Connolly and his wife in 1929, left, and their store, Connolly's Corner. (Submitted)

Connolly’s Corner, at King and Queen streets, was well known to every kid in town.

Jim sold us penny candy and school supplies. One way we could get the money to buy candy was by finding and cashing in pop bottles. Often we kids would buy candy on our way to school and hide it in our desk. When the teacher wasn’t looking, a few of us would pop a candy in our mouth. If the teacher caught you, she would confiscate the candy. Inset at left,  is Jim Connolly with his wife in 1929.
