Hair­dressers closes

Loughborough Echo - - LOOKING BACK -

AN OLD es­tab­lished hair­dress­ing busi­ness, Mar­riott’s of Church­gate, closed fol­low­ing the re­tire­ment of own­ers Miss N.E. Mar­riott and Mr Fred Elling­worth.

The busi­ness was opened in 1911 by the late Mr Ernest Mar­riott, and Miss Mar­riott - who was born on the premises - opened the ladies salon 34 years ago.

Mr Elling­worth had been cut­ting hair for 52 years, and re­called that when he started in the trade boy’s hair­cuts were 2d, and mens were 4d.

He said that so great was the call for shav­ing at the time that there was a rule of no hair­cut­ting on Satur­days.

Do you re­mem­ber Mar­riott’s? Maybe you used to go for a hair­cut or a shave? If you do please con­tact Liam Cole­man on 01509 635806 or email liam.cole­man@trin­i­tymir­
