Barber Chair

1900's Barber ChairRed Ballantyne operated a barber shop in the Westman Chambers Building on the North East corner of 11th Avenue and Rose Street in 1911-12 and later moved his shop to the 1800 block of Scarth Street.
This barber chair was donated to the museum by Red’s Daughter, Dorothy, in 1982.

Trivia

The first barber chair was invented by Ernest Koken who was born in Germany in 1906. The durability and design of the chair was unique. Hydraulics allowed the chair to be raised and lowered. White marble, chrome and leather were frequently used in the construction.
