Captains Corner

March 9, 1969, Appleton Post-Crescent
I must admit, I was oblivious to all this activity at Captains Corner.  It was enough adventure to run across Third Street from school at St. Mary's to get my hair cut at this place!  If anything I took from the experience was that when my haircut was done, the barber didn't use a brush.  Instead, he'd switch on this vacuum hose attachment to clean up those loose hairs off the back of my neck.  I thought that was the coolest thing.  In later years, the whole operation moved to that curve where Appleton Road met De Pere Street, where there had been a gas station.
