Graham’s ‘Pretty Booger’ offers shoeshines and smiles

GRAHAM, N.C. — The City Barber shop in Graham is a local landmark. In the front you can get a haircut and in the back you can get a shoeshine.

William Hester is a fixture in Graham — an entrepreneur. He has been shining shoes here in Graham since the 1950s. But people know him best because of his nickname, “Pretty Booger.”
