I recall the barber's name as John too,although he was Polish. I used have my hair cut by him and the trend in those days was to have your neck collar hair shaved of fine hair to show a distinct line, I think called a square neck. John always smoked a cigarette at this point, as using a cut throat razor seemed to make him nervous.

I was a customer at this barbers shop when I worked nearby in Queens Road. It was owned by John Fontlyn who was Polish, he lived in Wrenbury Crescent, Cookridge, next door to my fathers friend Doug Hardman.
