Saturday's Advertiser carried the story of the re-opening of Trims, a name that's been synonomous with clothing retail sales in Adelaide for 75 years! It's a new shop with new stock etc, but it got me remembering some of the other retailers whose names are stuck in my head and maybe we should do a whole series on them. Thwaites, is a name I remember, and 'Thwaites Corner' was on the corner of Rundle and Pulteney Streets all through our growing up years. Who could ever forget their slogan on radio and TV, "Men Swear by Thwaites for Men's Wear". There's a Telstra shop on that corner these days, and Rundle Street is now Rundle Mall but here's a photo from 1951, looking west from the corner of Rundle Street and Pulteney Street. Thwaite's Corner is located on the south west side and Coles and National Bank can be seen along the northern side of Rundle Street. This photo thanks to the State Library of South Australia.
