??Toomer’s Corner is where you’ll find the celebration after a big win at Auburn! The intersection of College Street and Magnolia Avenue is where Auburn's campus and the City of Auburn meet, and you’ll also find the famed Toomer's Drugs.• ??In the past, this local drug store had the only telegraph in the city. When employees received news of an #Auburn victory at an away game, they would throw the ticker tape onto the power lines of the intersection.• ??There is no clear consensus on when the tradition changed to throwing toilet paper into the trees, but we’re here for it! The only thing sweeter than this tradition is the fresh-squeezed lemonade made daily at Toomer’s Drugs?? #WarEagle
