We also recall our time at barber's
MEMORIES have been coming in to Bygones after Stewart Meakin's article about his father, Ken, who ran a barber's shop in Monk Street, Derby.
Ron Hassall, of Stockbrook Street, recalled visits to the shop with his own son.
He said: "I used to take my son, Steve, to Ken Meakin's from when he was about three years old. Ken used to sit him on a wooden box on the barber's chair.
"Some years later, Steve would go on his own. This time, Ken would have to stand on the wooden box to be able to reach Steve to cut his hair.
"I also remember the cardboard cut-out which used to stand outside the shop."
And Bernard Doxey, of Chaddesden, added: "I used to use the shop in the late 1950s and early 1960s. As I had long hair, I only had a trim. Sometimes Ken would cut it and, on occasions, his assistant, Charlie, did."
