Last week, we profiled Fiske's General Store, a town institution that has been open since 1863. This week, we're taking a look at one of the only other places in Holliston you could get penny candy in 1908.
At the turn of the 19th century, the East Holliston Corner Store sat on the spot that is now Country Liquors and Good Fellas Barber Shop, on the corner of Washington and Concord Streets. The building also housed Costa's Market in the 1950s.
Quiet at the time the "Then" picture was taken more than 100 years ago, Rossini Corner is now one of the busiest in Holliston. Bertucci's stands across the street in the building once occupied by Walter's Dairy (which has its own). Owned by the Rossinis (for whom the corner is named), Walter's opened its doors in the 1940s. Its legend lives on at its Facebook page.
