RICKSONS ADS - 70's/80's

A couple of adverts for Ricksons in the Nethergate.
Top one is from 1979 and the one underneath, 1980.
Two well known local hairdressers who were doing their apprenticeship at Ricksons at the time of the '79 ad, were Graeme Merchant and Norrie McDicken - but in 1980 both moved to Salon 51 to finish their training there.
Norrie now has his super-duper place in Reform Street - Salonori.
No idea how long Ricksons itself lasted.

  1. Became 'The Workshop' salon. Still had the mosaic 'R' on the floor in 89, which as a young teen, had me puzzled.
