By email, an EIT reader reminds me that sheaves of wheat were a symbol of the Corn Exchange Bank. "Corn," as you may know, at one time usually signified not only maize but grain of many sorts, especially whatever was most widely grown in a given region. One former Corn Exchange Bank, she adds, now is home to a Boston Market at the corner of Austin St. and Continental Ave., in Forest Hills, Queens. Thanks, Suzanne!
