20th Century Barbershops ~ #16 In A Series



The Stanley, Idaho service station/barber shop combination above was captured by Al Monner in August, 1940.

The photograph of the Florence, Colorado barber shop below was taken in the 1890s, which isn't the 20th century, but close enough. Notice the saddle used as a sign, hanging above the men to the left, a bicycle in the foreground, and what looks like a dog curled up at the man's feet.

I like how you can see the ripples in the glass.
