Description :

When chocolate and confectionary manufacturer Alfred Haigh opened a shop in the Beehive Corner building in 1915, his shop was on the King William Street side. In 1922 it moved to the shop on the corner of King William and Rundle Street (now Rundle Mall). A Haigh's store still occupies this prominent position in the heart of the city of Adelaide.
