Awhile back I found an old price list from a barber shop on the internet:

Does anyone want to venture a guess as to what year this was from?  I'm guessing from the 1920's to the 1930's, but I could be wrong. 

I remember seeing Flitch as a name brand product.  I *may* even have an old advertisement about it at HCF.  I believe there's a recipe for egg shampoo there too.  But Mange?  Maybe I spelled it wrong (it was a bit hard to read), but the only modern "Mange" product is for dogs.

This was also listed below the price list, and may also help with dating everything:

This Shop will Close at 7:00 P.M.
Saturday - 9:00 P.M.   Day Before Holiday 9:00 P.M.


Which makes me wonder if this barbershop was located in a larger town.  I could be wrong, that I thought that small town barbershops traditionally closed around 5 pm.
