Coiffeur For My Windowsill
How wonderful is this old black and white photo of a women's hair salon? I came across this image at www.swingfashionista.com. I find this old photo striking and full of nostalgic beauty, so much so, I'm in the process of having it printed for a frame. So what do I know about this image? Well not much. What I do know is that it was taken in 1926. Interestingly, the Marcel Of Paris Salon wasn't based in Paris. It was located on Connecticut Avenue in Washington, D.C. - soon to be located in an ornate antique silver frame on my windowsill.
