I remember Hughie`s barbershop. Always a cloud of smoke. The wireless was always tuned to the BBC for the racing results and music from the "light" orchestra. My turn for the short back and sides after Hughie had let all the men go before me. The short wooden board was placed across the two armrests of the chair.

After a short while and with my head looking like a hedgehog, and parting with 1/6, I was outside trying to get irritating hair clippings out of nostrils and ears.
