Historic Photos - Barber Shop

Greenlaw’s was at the intersection of Hog Alley and Main Street, now Triangle Park. The Greenlaw's were Ira and Bert. And there is earlier reference to a Lucien Greenlaw as a hair dresser. It seems the trade was passed from generation to generation in the Greenlaw family. In the Calais business directories for those early years there were no listings for barbers, only ads and listings for Hair Dressers. For instances the 1896 ad for Casey’s Hair Dressing, which we came to know as Casey’s Barbershop shop, states: “M. A. CASEY, Tonsorial Artist. Every, thing pertaining to the hairdressing art executed by experienced workmen. Fine foreign and domestic cigars constantly on hand.”
