Corner Market, Old Garner Road, 1975 by Marshall Wyatt
The staples of this neighborhood market in south Raleigh were beer, wine, cigarettes, and soft drinks. A 10-foot, hand-painted Coke bottle adorns one side of the building, and a poster stapled to the front door announces upcoming attractions at Dorton Arena - Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and Parliament-Funkadelic.
