1919 or so

1919 or so - later this day my mother took me to a barber & my curls were cut off.Later this day, my mother took me to a barber and had my curls cut off.  My father worked at McCall Brothers (later renamed McCall Frontenac Oil and then Texaco Canada) company from the 1890s until his retirement around 1945.  Before he bought his first car in 1922, a baby grand Chevrolet, he used to get a ride home from a coworker.  This man used to tease and call me “Mary” (which was my sister’s name) and I hated being called by a girl’s name; he has also gave me a quarter occasionally, which was a lot of money at that time.
