Hairdressers, Tobacconists, Etc.

Hooper, Stephen Charles, Hair-dresser and Tobacconist, High Street, Dannevirke. This business was established by Mr. T. Bates, and, after passing through various hands, was subsequently acquired by the present proprietor in July, 1903. The premises are situated opposite Station Street, and are well-fitted up. The saloon is up-to-date in every respect, and the shop carries a general stock of tobacco, pipes, and fancy goods. Mr. Hooper was born on the 10th of May, 1871, at Napier, where his father conducted a hair-dressing business for thirty years. He was educated at the public schools in Napier, Meanee College, and the Napier Boys' High School, and then served his time to his present trade with his father. Later on he opened a business in Palmerston North for Mr. Jubal Fleming, which he managed for a time, and on returning to Napier he started in business on his own account. In 1896, however, he sold out, in order to visit the Auckland gold-fields, but soon afterwards returned to Napier, and for some time conducted a business in Emerson Street. He subsequently removed to Dannevirke, where he worked as a journeyman for eighteen months, and then bought his present business. Mr. Hooper is a member of the Napier Lodge of Druids, the Dannevirke Jockey Club, the Dannevirke Bowling Club and the Excelsior Football Club. He is married and has two sons and one daughter.
