Marshall Field's Hair Salon

Marshall Field's used to operate a hair salon in the pedway. It was the perfect place for a quick perm before a night out in old Chicago town.

This used to be the reception desk. A person would sit on that chair and talk to the people as they entered and exited the salon. Fashion, Chicago weather, aldermanic goings-on, no topic was taboo for the ladies of yesteryear.
