  17. Photo page 60 1977 Radford rd Hyson Green. If you make photo larger you can see a salon "Michael Allen" this was one salon that I worked at. Just a bit of info Micheal was married to Aurdrey and all his 8 salon's which he owned was named Aurdrey's but at 32 she had a brain tumor and she did not survive. He then changed the name to Micheal Allen. Still one salon is being used it is in Wollaton. The wholesalers called Rendezous allso belonged to the Allen family. If I remember correctly the salon on Radford Rd/Berkin Ave was his first salon and he went on from there.
