ARMADALE’S classic corner stores were in the spotlight for the Focus 2017 photographic competition.

The competition was open to amateur photographers with the theme of “Our Corner Stores”.

City of Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said the competition entries captured many of the City’s iconic corner store locations.

“The local corner store is getting rarer every year and before they fade from the horizon we are keen to document these unique and often quaint shops,” he said.

The entries are also helping to assist the Birtwistle Local Studies Library with its Picture Armadale photograph collection.

Helen Gordon took out the top spot in the competition with Town and Country Fruit and Veg – Old Shop/New Shop, Christy Wintle was second with River Road Deli, and Julie Beatson came in third with Alan Beattie’s Meat.

Kerry Faulkner received an honourable mention for Norm’s Lunchbar.

The winning photographs will be on display at the Armadale Library until Friday, June 23.
