The Strathfield South shops on the corner of Liverpool Road (Hume Highway) and Homebush Road are also locally known as ‘Whites’ Corner’
The “White” of “White’s Corner” was a grocery shop operated by E R White in the 1920s. According to Sands Directory, E R White’s shop was located on the north-west corner of Homebush Road and Liverpool Road. Entries in the early 1930s also refer to White’s Service Station and Sawmill.
I’m not sure of the origin of the photo but possibly it is from the State Library. The photograph shows the Crossways Hotel, which was built in 1930. It is likely the photograph is c.1930s.
The banner is from a 1957 edition of The Citizen, a local paper, which shows the local adoption of the name ‘White’s Corner’ for the South Strathfield Shopping Centre.
