    on every corner

    "Hmmm, things left behind ...’’I thought to myself. It seems there is one thing left behind on every corner . Memories are always left behind, I reasoned, and what a precious thing good memories are to us.

    Is "on every corner" naturally used here? Should it be written as "in/at every corner" instead?

    Thanks for your help!

    In the US "on" would be correct. Other regions may accept "at". I can't think of "in" being used any place.
