Barber Shop Changes Hands, 1909

Tonsorial news from the March 4, 1909 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri):

Barber Shop Changed Hands.

W. H. Hill sold his barber shop Monday to John Owens, son of C. E. Owens, of the well known firm of Barrett, Stoolfer & Owens. Mr. Owens took possession at once and is now proprietor of the shop.

W. H. Hill came from Maryville here and started in business January 18, 1894, and has been in the one shop 15 years, 1 month and 10 days. He will stay with Mr. Owens for a while at least. He has not fully determined just what he will do, but it is very likely that he and Mrs. Hill will continue to remain citizens of Skidmore for some time yet.

Mr. Owens is a young man of experience, good business ability, and starts out with everything in his favor for a successful career.
