Looking Back to 1916: Price of Haircuts Goes to 35 Cents!!

From the August 24, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1916, 100 Years Ago.

"Beginning with tomorrow morning the barbers of DeKalb will get 35 cents for every haircut.  This is according to the price agreed upon by the barbers of the city some short time ago.

There will be a falling off of their business for a couple weeks perhaps, but in time the men will become accustomed to the price and will pay it without objecting.
