Barber Shop

Out to the west of the commissary, not more than a thirty second walk, stands Mr. Harvey's Bar­ber Shop in its original building. Those who remember Mr. Harvey remember the story he would tell. Mrs. Longino recalled that "Mr. Sam Allen came into the barber shop one cold, cold morning. As he [Mr. Harvey] was opening up, it was just about time for Sam Allen to open the commissary. He went in there, had his old coat on. He said, 'can you cut my hair and leave my coat on?' The Barber looked at him and said, 'I'll cut your hair with your hat on Mister.'" Mr. Allen was a pillar of Tioga who was remem­bered by all. He was also bald.
