Wess Hebron and his Barber Shop

Title

Wess Hebron and his Barber Shop

Description

Black and white image of a man in a vest and bow tie standing outside the doorway of a small barber shop. The welcome mat beneath his feet proclaims this to be 'Wess's Barber Shop,' while a sign on the side of the building offers 'Polymer International Roffler Hair Replacement.' An advertisement on the roof offers razor cuts, and signs reading 'Hairstyling' and 'Tonsorial - not another barber but THEE BARBER' decorate the roof, and a neon sign surrounds a clock. Opened on SW Baseline in 1960 by proprietor Wess Hebron, Wess's Barber Shop was a familiar landmark for many years in Hillsboro. See WCMpic_013806, WCMpic_013809, and WCMpic_013817 for other images of the exterior of this shop, and WCMpic_013810, WCMpic_013811, and WCMpic_013812 for views of the interior.
