[Photo Caption:] The Manhattan Barber Shop – circa 1900.
Inscription. Furniture retailers C.L. and D.B. Fairley joined undertaker Oscar Lampman to finance the construction of this building. The Fairleys opened a branch of their Colorado Springs store here; Lampman acted primarily as an investor.

The Central Drug Store occupied the northwest corner of the first floor. Opposite it was the Manhattan Barber Shop. Employing eight barbers and promoting its five porcelain bath tubs, the Manhattan claimed to be the only “metropolitan” shop in the District. Clients preferred their hair cut above the ears and parted on the side – with a neatly trimmed mustache.

Professionals such as lawyers and doctors leased offices on the second floor, and the B.P.O.E. (Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks) 316 – a very influential organization in Cripple Creek – held their meetings on the third floor.
 
Erected by The Gold Belt Tour.
