Farber the Barber

On downtown's Wisconsin Avenue, just across from the lake, is "Farber's" - an old-fashioned, storefront barber shop. Note the prices: Buzz Cut $5. Haircuts $10. While fancy salons are folding all around us, this little place is still open for business!

Only $10, that sounds like a bargain, I pay more like $25!

Your blog has been included in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

I don't have the head for a buzz cut.

That's a very cute looking shop. And only $10, that must be a 10 minute haircut :-)

Actually, it's a great haircut.
I've been getting my haircut there for almost a year. The owner is awesome, you should stop in sometime for candy, and ask about the history of the building, she'll tell you.
