20th Century Barbershops ~ #8 In A Series



Both photographs are courtesy of the Detroit Publishing Company collection in the Library of Congress, and both were taken in 1910. The first, in New Orleans, Louisiana, is captioned "typical milk cart". The second shows some of the grandeur that once was Detroit, Michigan. That's the elaborate entrance to the barbershop in the Pardridge & Blackwell building.

Oh golly that makes me feel old - I can remember the time when our milk was delivered by pony and trap and our vegetables came round on a horse drawn cart.
