Description

TRANSCRIPTION

123. A Turkish Barber Shop, Constantinople, Turkey

A Turkish Barber Shop, Constantinople, Turkey - Turkey has its barber shops just as we do in this country. The chairs, which are nothing more than ordinary arm chairs, are arranged in the open air, under a few shade trees. The customer sits quietly while the barber, with his red turban, runs a queer looking instrument over his face.

Sept 16th 11 Dear Brother Clarence as I have not heard from home for so long I thought I would drop a card to see what the matter was. I just returned last night from hop picking but we had so much rain that we could not make much one day though I earned $4.25 I was gone 12 days and earned $20.00 how is mother and all the rest up there? We are all well here at present and Baby is getting such a big girl hoping to hear from you soon we remain as ever Isaac & Amy
