Hamburger and haircut on the side

January 8, 2013 - Karin Elton
I thought I knew a lot about the history of Marshall, particularly the makeup of downtown Marshall, but I learned something new today. An older gentleman came into the newsroom this morning to place an obituary in the Wednesday paper and mentioned the deceased person’s parents owned a restaurant in the 1930s and 1940s called Larry’s. He said it was behind where Johnson’s Paint is now.

Furthermore, he said, there was a barber’s chair in the restaurant and people could get their hair cut there! In a way, that is convenient. A family could eat while a family member gets their hair cut. I just hope the cut hair didn’t fly into the food. The thought is a little unappetizing.
