In this image, Max Yacobian is seen trimming the hair of Doug Crenshaw in 1953. The boy's father and grandfather, Don Crenshaw and Earl Crenshaw, respectively, are also in attendance. Yacobian worked as a barber at Star Barbershop since 1938, and perhaps as early as the late 1920s. By 1939, he became the sole proprietor of  he barbershop located at 205 South Orange Avenue in Downtown Orlando, Florida. After cutting hair for over 25 years, he passed away sometime between 1953 and 1956. This lot, as well as the rest of the block, was later replaced by the CNA Tower and Barnett Plaza.
