Synopsis

This is not your average show and tell antique picture book! If you only think you like barbershop antiques and collectibles, this book is for you! It is the first volume that covers the entire spectrum of old-time barbershop items: poles, chairs, mugs, bottles, razors and much more. Even better, it takes you on a delightful romp through the occupational history of traditional barbershops, which are fading today. By chronicling the golden years of barbering, the book is guaranteed to be both informative and fun. Every page presents what, where, why, when, and how information. More than 900 barbershop items appear in over 650 color photographs with current market prices. You need this barbershop reference for definitive information. It will be the preferred reference beacon for many years.
