Custer's Barbershop exterior

You will obviously recognize the location as the present day Menard County Historical Society HQ. William J Custer's barber shop was at the bottom of the stairs. William J Custer is second from the right, the others are not known. The picture was taken somewhere in the early 1900's inasmuch as the family left Petersburg for Oklahoma in 1908.
