From the Archive: Shave and a Haircut …

by Lesley Drayton, Curator of the Fort Collins Local History Archive

While going through a folder of photographs that includes Fort Collins businesses beginning with the letter “B” (encompassing Bakeries, Billiard Parlors, Blacksmiths and more!), I found this wonderful picture of the Campus Barbershop that was located at 647 South College in the early 1920s. What is so much fun about this photograph are the details that come to light after scanning the image at high resolution, from bottles of Lucky Tiger aftershave tonic lining the countertops to the hair on the floor. My favorite detail in the barbershop is the sign hanging against the back wall. It reads: “Do Not Ask For Credit. We need the money. If you can’t RAISE the PRICE, RAISE WHISKERS.” Duly noted, gentlemen!
