У нас тут тоже есть золотая осень 🍂 🍁💛 Но только в тех местах, где растут такие деревья))) В основном улицы усажены вечнозелеными пальмами и апельсинами, которые вот-вот начнут менять цвет плодов с зеленого на оранжевый 🍊 И опять словно лето наступит 😊😊😊 Хотя что значит опять)) сегодня 19 октября, я гуляю в сандаликах 😋😍 #ЯтаклюблюИспаньку#vitunyanature
Alonzo Herndon born into slavery
Arriving in early 1883, he secured employment as a barber in a shop on Marietta Street owned by William Dougherty Hutchins, an African American. After six months Herndon purchased half interest in the shop, entering into a partnership with one of the few free blacks operating barbering establishments since before the Civil War.
Herndon's barbering business expanded, and by 1904 he owned three shops in Atlanta. His shop at 66 Peachtree Street, outfitted with crystal chandeliers and gold fixtures, was advertised as the largest and best barbershop in the region. According to the Atlanta Journal, Herndon and his all-black barbering staff were "known from Richmond all the way to Mobile as the best barbers in the South." Following the racial practices of the era, the black barbers served an exclusively white clientele composed of the city's leading lawyers, judges, politicians, and businessmen. As proprietor, Herndon personally saw to the barbering services provided to some of the most important figures in the state, earning their acquaintance and good will. His success in barbering was spectacular, and as his earnings grew, he invested in real estate in Atlanta and in Florida. Eventually he acquired more than 100 houses, a large block of commercial property on Auburn Avenue, and a large estate in Tavares, Florida.
Through his enterprises Herndon became Atlanta's first black millionaire and one the first in the United States. Herndon was featured in The Crisis Magazine’s “Men of the Month” in March 1921. The article emphasizes his competence and success as a businessman.
