Here is another mid-1950s photo from the Mike Riddick Collection. George Guthrie Jackson (1922-2005) operated his barber shop on the corner of Lighthouse Road and Moonlight Valley Road (between the lighthouse and the path leading to Springer's Point). I don't remember how much a haircut cost back then because my father always cut my hair. Maybe one of our readers knows.
George Guthrie was the father of Jimmy Jackson, and the grandfather of Jamie Jackson, Ocracoke's car mechanics.
George Guthrie's barbershop has been gone a long time. Today, Susie Hutchinson operates Halo Hair Studio at Angie's Gym on Sand Dollar Road.
