New Barber Shop, 1921

On this day in 1921, Skidmore, Missouri gained a barber shop.  Not only was it new, it was clean and decent enough for the ladies.  From the May 26, 1921 Skidmore News, page 1:

New Barber Shop Opens Today.

Two young men from King City, Mr. Alldredge and Mr. Morris, have taken possession of the barber shop in the basement below the Bank of Skidmore.  They arrived Tuesday, but did not open the shop until today.

See their ad elsewhere in this issue.
