A bit rough around the edges yet I bet this is the place to find out what really is happening here.
When younger in NYC I went to a friends shop, on 5th avenue, and had my hair cut. I also had my wallet emptied. It was a hair cut, nothing more.
Later in life I went to a small town barber. He was 300 years old, gave me his ‘regular’, and it was again a hair cut. I left with money in my pocket, had much more interesting conversations, I even got to read the original Life Magazines from the 1950’s he still had on the table.
There is something important here that will probably be lost soon.
A few of the old independent 5 & 10’s still hang on. Though I’m sure the prices have changed a bit.
In my NYC neighborhood we had both Woolworth’s and Kresge to roam through.
The windows were covered for the most part but a hand written sign had the hours of operation. Sunday is the best time to shoot in these towns so everything was closed. It also means few people or cars in the shots.
