Love, loyalty, family: The story of Joe Thomeh's Market
This is the first piece in artist Jon Claytor's illustrated series Corner Store Stories
Corner stores can be cornerstones of a community, or street. They're the cream for your coffee, Popsicles on a hot day and movie rental memories. And, of course, there are the familiar faces behind the cash.
Artist Jon Claytor visited a few corner stores in Halifax, and created an illustrated series inspired by these conversations.
This first piece starts at the corner of Cornwallis and Maynard.
