Old-time Barber Shop - NYC 1975
I took this photo as I wandered the streets of Manhattan, shortly after graduating from college, when I didn't know anyone in the suburbs to which I had returned. I found the city a fascinating place, filled with old shops and businesses, ones that may have been there from early in the 20th Century, along with the new and modern glass buildings that were going up all around me. Even then, in 1975 or 1976, when this was taken, I sensed that these vignettes of everyday people needed to be preserved, for the future.
