Barber Saapu

The Barber shop or "Saloon" where we used to get our haircuts every month. This one is located on Galle Road, Wellawatte and taken in 1981. The swing saloon doors were always very significant of this place. Mirrors, on both sides of the wall where one could see forever and ever enveloped you inside. The water spray, filled in glass botlles, sat staring on the table. His equipment, consisting of comb, razor, scissors, machine etc were laid out on a tray.

The tonsorial artistes were mostly Tamils clad in white shirt and sarongs.
