Ella and Katherine O'Donnell owned this hair dressers shop. One of the sisters is leaning against a small table, displaying a hairpiece to a gentleman, possibly one of the photographers, who is seated in a chair facing a mirror. Visible in the rear of the room are a hair-drying fan facing an empty chair, and a small sink. White privacy screens may be seen on the other side of the room. In the foreground of the photograph is a glass display case filled with women's decorative hair combs, barrettes and bottles of hair products. William J.
