Dimitri’s Barber Shop – San Francisco 1987

San Francisco Old Town, 1987 or so

Dimitri’s was across from the original Trans America headquarters – an old building in the old part of San Francisco. Way back when, San Francisco was the Financial hub of the West Coast – which grew out of the Gold Rush.

I don’t exactly remember seeing the Playboy magazines in the lower part of this composition, but I must have – the way I framed it. That surely advertises that this is a manly man barber shop.

The 1970,’s station wagon, cop car, barber pole and open cash drawer add a lot and remind me that I was very much interested in Eugene Atget’s Parisian store front window photos.
