This one-story brick building was built in 1923-1924 by/for Cleveland L. Lindsay. Its original dimensions were nine feet wide by 50 feet deep (!).

Just beyond the "Carrboro Cash Store" and before the Pure service station, view north east, 1953 (via Mack Watts collection)

The building has been a barber or hair salon at least since the 1990s, with perhaps the most "famous" business being "Cool Breeze."
