This little barber shop occupied space on Caledonian Lane, in between a tailor and a mattress shop. The storekeepers had been worked beside one another for about 30 years, I was told. In 2004, ill health meant the barber had to close. A Japanese cafe held the space for a few years after that. The Myer-owned building has been empty this year and has been covered in graffiti, paving the way for its demolition.
Here is a little gallery of photos taken inside and outside the barber shop in 2004, during a measure up.
