close shave

I stopped at Flittner’s Gentleman’s Barbers near Moorgate Station in London.  I looked inside and they were doing wet shaves and I thought I’d treat myself.

When I enquired the cost was £25.00 for a shave.  I decided to give it a miss.  I asked permission to take the photograph inside the shop.  The staff and customers agreed.  I said it was for an Iraqi barber in Sheffield who did well from wet shaves.  I then said that there were alot of Kurdish men in the barber business.  Kurds, Eastern Europeans, whatever, they are everywhere came the response from the barber in the shop.  I couldn’t work out where he was from.
