Some interesting chair history

1926 Beringhaus Barber Chair
As told by Norm Elam, long time barber in Oakhurst, the previous owner.
The chair was brought to the mountain area in the early 1930's by an unnamed barber that operated a bath house and laundry, barber shop and even dentistry for the loggers and mill workers. Norm said the chair was missing the folding ankle rest as it was broken off at the hinges by a burly mill worker while he was getting a tooth pulled. The business closed at the start of WW2. Another gentleman used the chair until early 70's. During this time the headrest wore out and was discarded. Norm used chair until recliner quit working in the early 80's when my wife bought it as a wedding present for me.
