I’ve lived in the same village all my life, and pass by this barber almost everyday.
Usually there’s only the one or two customers, but occasionally you see brothers seated side by side by the wall after school, or several men reading newspapers awaiting their turn on sunday mornings.
He leaves a notice out for his customers everytime he’s away on holiday, when he’s away at the hospital and on general bank holidays. Nice.
I’ve never set foot in the shop but there’s always something warm and comforting seeing something that’s unchanged for years.
