"Dick" Hammer began his hamburger stand in 1935 and then finally his business developed into a 200 customer restaurant complete with rustic charm and memorabilia. In 1999 the building and it's adjoining barbershop (my father's barbershop) was demolished to make way for a local bank. Before the doors were closed and took time off from college (photography major) and attempted to capture the mood and feeling of the final day's of Dick's Cafe and Knell's Barbershop.
