City Barber Shop

Back when I had hair long enough to cut, this was my barber shop. Now that I keep my hair very short, I can run the clippers over it myself. This is one of the many small shops along Moore Ave. in Terrell.

Glad to see there are still barbers out there.

I would like to find a barber shop like this one to take my son to!

Yep, back in the day. Hard to find a barber shop these days or, heck, even a good barber.
Good post, Jim!

Have you seen the Clint Eastwood movie, Grand Torino? They had a barber in it that I would go to just to hear him chat with his clients!'I do my husband's hair...or lack of it...with the clippers as well.!

I am glad to see this is still open. Seems to me as if these are being replaced at a pretty quick pace by effeminate stylists and their trendy boutiques.

Looked very unique and eye catching. I hope to find a very uique barber here but difficult cause many are being replaced by new modern hair saloons.

Great photo, Jim. About doing your own hair, off and on my sons do that, too. They're as successful as you are! I'm being nice, too, in case you're wondering--telling the truth, not poking fun.

Neat to see the barber shop colors. I don't think we have a regular barber shop here. MB

les vieux salons de coiffures pour homme, cela me fait penser a ma jeunesse dans le village de mon grand-père, chaque année direction le vieux salon et hop la coupe au bol ;o))

the old barber shops for men, it makes me think of my youth in the village of my grandfather every year towards the old hop lobby and the cutting bowl ;o))
