9th Street Barber Shop

9th Street Barber Shop

Originally uploaded by DIGITAL IDIOT.

This is where I got my haircut from 2nd grade (1986) until my senior year of college (2001).

This is Americana. Two barbers. Straight-razor HOT LATHER shaves. The leather belt attached to the chairs to sharpen the razor. Old men. Sports Illustrated. Moose antlers and a Great Northern Pike mounted on the wall.

My dad still gets his haircut here.

Get there early on Saturday, or you’ll have to wait.
