About this memory

The Barber with the glasses was before our time so we don’t know his name.

There is a wireless for customers to listen to.

On the shelves are various products for sale such as Blue Double Edge Gillette Blades, hair tonic’s and creams.

    Regarding the wireless, I remember getting my haircut I think it was in 1960, there was a very jazzy tune coming quietly from the wireless, played on a violin…very distinctive and as I now know would have been the great Stephane Grappelli. Class!
