Lubbock Barber College in 1926
Lubbock Barber College - 1926
Our father, T. T. Hughes moved to Lubbock along with his family in 1926 from Memphis, Texas.   He moved to Lubbock to attend the Lubbock Barber College.

The college was located in the rear of the "Broadway Hotel" located on the southwest corner of Broadway and Ave. H.  The barber college faced the east or Ave. H. 

After my father finished his barber course, he and one of the other students, Carl Eubanks, bought the college and operated it for about 5 years.  In 1932, they desolved their partnership, and my father opened a shop on west 19th St.  He was on the north side of 19th St., across the  from fire station no. 2,  located on the corner of 19th and Ave. V. It had a tall water tower behind it.  He stayed in that location until 1936, and then moved across the street to 2213 19th St. and remained there until his death in 1957.  

I am attaching a copy of a picture of the old barber college.   In the picture, Carl Eubanks is at the first chair, and my father is at the second chair.
