Patterson's invention "relates to an improvement in head-rests for barbers' chairs; and it consists in the peculiar construction and combination of devices... The object of my invention is to provide a head-rest that is adapted to be folded back upon the chair when the customer desires to have his hair cut, so as to be out of the way."
