Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Johnson’s Barber Shop …

with 4 comments

Someone had made a comment earlier about Johnson’s Barber Shop,  that was one of the shops at the corner of 12th Avenue and Gonzalez Street and I dug this one out.  This is me getting a hair cut by either Mr. Johnson or Mr. Helms … I do not know which one.  This is not my first hair-cut because I was really crying in that photo.  I have it somewhere around here and I will post it when I find it … everyone will get a good laugh, because I am really crying!!  You would think I am really in pain or was being beaten.  Notice the board that they have me sitting on…how many of you there ever sat on this board and had your hair cut?  I bet quite a few of you readers out there.   Also, look at the reflections in the mirror … they must have been very busy on this day.  Thanks for looking … Frank

    • I cannot remember the board, but I can see Mr Johnson and Mr Helms like it was yesterday. Didn’t I meet you at the downtown post office one morning and we stood around and talked for fifteen or twenty minutes? You are the musician … Thanks for commenting – Frank

    • Thanks for for the comment, Frank. I can still see that barber shop like it was yesterday. I have often wondered what happened to Mr. Johnson or Floyd Helms … I have a movie of me getting my first hair cut and all I did was cry. At some point I want to get all of these movies that my father made converted into DVD’s, but I will have to win the lottery first since it is so expensive to have done. Thanks again for commenting and please check back … Frank
