Mitch Ortiz owned the barbershop on the northeast corner of Lansing and Ukiah Streets from 1975 to 2009. He photographed all his customers and pinned the photographs on his wall. His collection, which is now housed at the Kelley House Museum, can be seen on the wall behind him.
Can you help us identify Mitch’s customers? Although the Kelley House has names for some of his large collection, there are still many more unknown faces. If you think you might be able to recognize someone on Mitch’s wall, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment to flip thru our photo binders.
