Blast from the Past - Henry Williams Barber Shop Mackay Idaho 1930

Grandson, Henry Williams, who works at Sammy's today said his grandfather, Henry Williams was a barber in 2 locations in Mackay. For a time, the shop was in the area where Ken's Banquet Room is today between Ken's Club (then the Strunk Building) and Perks. And for a time, they were located in a building that sat pretty close to where the Ireland Bank sits today on Main Street (building was razed). The older Henry Williams was a barber here in Mackay Idaho from at least 1908 until 1949 or 1950 when his eyesight failed and he had to stop working.
