Harry Powell the Barber

A rare interview with Treherbert legend Harry Powell who had a barber shop on 17 Dunraven Street, known as Harry the Hatchet. Questions are being asked by Harry’s wife. This is a VHS tape transfer.

After the shop closed on March 31, 1990, the interior and exterior windows were donated to St Fagans National Museum of History. Update: 2021, the shop remains not build at the museum and is still in storage.
