An old style barber

Between the pubs, at No. 103 High Street, was R.C.Cole, an old style hairdresser. Until the acceptance of the safety razor, it was the custom of the better classes to go to the barber to be shaved, and at Cole's each customer had his own brush and mug kept on a shelf at the shop. However, Cole had the reputation of 'popping out for a pint or two' and was apt to let the open razor slip.
