Got all the town news + haircut at Hotel Barber Shop

Richard Draper writes:
I used to get my hair cut at this barber shop when I was growing up. I would walk to town from school every other Friday to get a burr hair cut.I would wait in the shop until my Dad could pick me up. I got to hear all the town news while waiting for Dad.

I did this until I started to high school in 1963.

I always tried to get in Johnnie's chair because he always gave me a nickle to spend afterwards.

Johnnie was Gilliam's brother and part owner of the shop. -Richard Draper
