est ce qu'il fait la coiffure au bol ;o))). On en trouve encore sur Paris des vieux barbiers, mais cela deviens rare, maintenant ce n'est que des chaines sans aucunes ames.
Bonjour a Henri Fonda..

An inviting place, makes me remember my dad's old shaving brush. But Henry Fonda (Grapes of Wrath?) makes me think of the Depression.
BTW Yesterday's photo is just outstanding - photography magazinge submission for that one.

Je suis de l'avis d'Olivier. Cela avait un certain charme se faire faire la barbe au blaireau et à la crème à raser. Cela me rappelle qu'à la kermesse de mon école à paris quand j'étais petiote, je gagnait toujours un blaireau.
Fonda inoubliable dans les Raisins de la Colère.

toute une époque...on imagine certaines scènes de film à suspense avec deux clients dont un menaçant pour l'autre et le barbier imperturbable le rasoir à la main.

A wonderful old-fashioned nostalgic shop. And Henry Fonda is nicely framed.

Just gorgeous!

The barbershop looks awesome! Glad it's so well preserved.
I guess this famous photo of Henry Fonda is his best shot ever.

This so works! That great photo of Henry Fonda, the green lettering, the barber shop symbol - the display, the chairs. Brilliant!

I'm with Jilly. Perfectly composed. I've been meaning to check out a little old fashioned barber shop near me.

This is a very complicated and interesting photo. So many different planes ... and I really like the framing of the face through the out of focus lettering ... the barber pole gives instant information about the shop. Kudos!

A real barbershop, where you can still get shaved (?)! Any barbershop singing offered? Really nice!!

M-N, How did they know you were coming? I guess even barbers in New York City have perfect aesthetic sensbilities.

Very nice photo. The barbershop looks like something from an other era. Interesting there is a poster of an unshaven Henry Fonda from the Grapes of Wrath in the shop next to all those expensive shaving brushes.

Joni January 11, 2009 at 12:55 PM  

This is a really cool photo!

Catherine January 12, 2009 at 12:03 PM  

La représentation de H.Fonda est un grand classique, toujours au goût du jour.
J'aime le coté suranné du lieu qui, comme Fonda, n'est pas démodé.
