About this image
The billboard in front of the shop advertises films showing at the Plaza cinema in Mansfield from January 21 and advises patrons to "Come As Early As You Can". Two films are listed: musical drama The Broken Melody starring John Garrick and Merle Oberon, and mystery Girl in Danger with Ralph Bellamy and Shirley Grey. Both were released in 1934.
Cigarettes advertised include Park Drive, Player's 'Country Life', and Wills's 'Star'. There is a cigarette machine just to the right of the door.
The Hairdressing Saloon caters for both 'Ladies and Gents', offering Marcel Waving and Shampoo Singeing, plus 'Cremex' and 'Harlene' and 'Uzon' for the hair.
Note the red and white striped barber's pole above the door.
