Stores refers to a stall on Elphinstone Street (now Zeb-un-Nissa
street) run by a man named Jankidas in the 1930s and 1940s. Commonly known as Janki, British soldiers changed this to "Johnny."
Johnny Stores used to sell toffees, sweets, chewing gum, pencils,
pens, battery cells, and other odds and ends. It also sold nicely
printed black-and-white postcards of Karachi that may have been
photographed by someone else. [Many thanks to Ardeshir Cowasjee for background
