The Barber Pole
Cave Spring, Georgia
You may have seen some of my other Barber related paintings. I painted the Barber Chair, from a shop I found in Cave Springs, Georgia. This Barber pole was from the same shop. As you can see on the window, it says “Air Conditioned” and “Hot Shower Bath”. I was curious about the combination because they seemed to be from different eras. The story, as I was told, it was on a truck route, so they had drivers stop in for a haircut and a bath. As Air Conditioning became popular, it was also included in the sign.
The Barber Chair and the Barber Pole became popular items, especially at the Cave Spring show and the Rome, Georgia show. Eventually, I painted four paintings, which became one of my sets of 4. They were the Barber Chair, Barber Pole, Burma Shave Barn and the Barber Tonics. The set became one of my most popular sets across the country.
No Prints Available at this time. If you are interested in a print, let me know, I am always looking for new good quality vendors!
