Wess's Barbershop Popcorn Stand and Parade Float


Black and white image of a popcorn stand being pulled on a trailer behind a sedan, both advertising Wess's Barber Shop. Wess Hebron, the proprietor, stands at the rear of the trailer, and wears a white barber's shirt with a flat panama hat. A sign on the back of the trailer advertises 'Jolly Time Iowa Corn' and thanks the community for their support. Opened on SW Baseline in 1960 by proprietor Wess Hebron, Wess's Barber Shop was a familiar landmark for many years in Hillsboro.
