Good bye Dollie, we don’t need you
SANDUSKY — That old tune, “Good Bye Dollie, I must Leave You,” etc. etc. was sung by many of the young men of the city Thursday for Miss Dollie Smith, the only girl barber of the city, left for Norwalk.
Dolly played to a three-days’ engagement at the C. Freeman barber shop on East Market Street this week. A young and pretty girl, Dolly attracted much additional trade to the shop...
....Dollie must have been stringing the boys in the Bay City about coming to Norwalk for an engagement. Several days ago, a female barber flew into town and sought to play a half-week stand, but none of the shops would give her time.
“Norwalk men go to a barber shop to get shaved, not to tango,” is the way one boss barber put it yesterday afternoon when asked about the female barber.
