This great view of Oregon City daily life was taken by Eddy toward the end of his career, using his postcard camera. Ole Bertilson is the barber on the right. You get the feeling that these men were very comfortable having their photo taken by Eddy. This makes sense, as he had been taking photographs in their town for almost forty years, and likely had his own hair cut many times in one of these barber chairs.
