Barbershop helper

[Photo by father and narrative by my mother]

Jerry began mentioning a neighborhood boy who was at the barbershop a good bit. The barbers found that Billy was eager to do small chores and errands. Pretty soon, up popped the boy's image in my developing tray from the roll of barbershop film Jerry handed me to process. Billy Vander Maas, charming little entrepreneur, here sweeps the floor for Herman Ripmaster, the shop owner at the time. The boy schmoozed the customers as well, and everybody loved him.


Does anyone recognize the customer getting a haircut?
