A Cash Register Returns Home

Cash Register New SpaceWelcome home.

This cash register used to be central to the business of a San Francisco barbershop that was operated by a man named Riley Bevins in the early 1900s. Bevins’ grandson has just sold it to us on eBay, and we’ll do our best to honor the legacy of the machine. (Specifically, A National Cash Register, model #313.)

Here it is, at left, with its distinctive marble counter blending in nicely with the marble in our new space!
