Barber shop chair

I spotted this old fashioned Barber Chair at the Washington County Museum today. If only it could talk, what stories it would tell me….

When I think of barber shops, I picture a row of chairs with men sitting getting a shave. I can hear them talking briefly about the news of the day and sports scores.   Barbering is not a new thing but has been happening for over a thousand years. History dates it back to the time of the Egyptians. The methods and tools have changed over the years but one thing remains the same. The barber’s job is to cut hair.  If you’d like to find out more about barbering and its history, check out the The Barber museum website: Barber Museum .

Have you been to a barbershop?
