Sue Holman grew up in Askew Mansions, Shepherd’s Bush and as a child she had her hair cut in a barber’s shop close by. Later, the family moved down to Cornwall, and she used to return to the Bush from time to time to visit relatives, but doesn’t remember if the shop was still there then?
However, she does know that the shop must have survived the Blitz as it was definitely still in existence in 1951. She is eager to find out the name of the barber’s shop pictured below and its exact location. She thinks it must have been situated in Askew Road somewhere near Askew Mansions. The only other detail is that she thinks the barber’s name may have been Bert?
I have scanned the photo in the hope that it will jog someone’s memory so that I shall be sure of the name and the location. As children both girls and boys had their hair cut there. As we left the area when we were very young, and as our parents have now passed on, I can’t get any more details from the family.
Can anyone help Sue solve the mystery?
