Here’s a look inside Francois de Paris, a hairdresser/beauty parlor on Eighth Street in New York, New York. They show the patrons getting perms, dye jobs, manicures, under hair dryers, and the front desk staff running the business. All of these pictures were taken by photographer Marjory Collins in September 1942.
