New Barber’s Sign and New Poetry Forum on Bridge Street

July 8, 2016

New Barber
On Bridge Street the barber has a new sign and the new name of ‘Istanbul Barber’. While one customer is having a white shave, another customer is having a hot towel. Both appear to be in different parts of Aladdin’s cave and between them is the Bosphorus Bridge at night. Looks a good Movie!
New Barber
Over the road the Broad Face pub has been closed for a couple of months, and somebody has started to use the blackboard as a poetry forum. The first poem is about a man buying a pig at Abingdon Market and has an amusing ending. I look forward to reading more.

    Wondered what this was about when I say it and the note re Europe etc. was interesting. What is the intended fate of the Broad Face?
