Barber and customer, c. 1892 - Mount Pleasant, Utah

Sir this is simply a photo of a murder scene /j
Sweeney Todd’s grandpappy
The barber looks like the neighbor on Home Alone 😆
It's the snow shovel guy from home alone. Time traveler.
Why TF is it a backdrop? Did he bring that whole rig and customer to Sears?? Also, looks like Wizard of Oz
The barber probably did bring all his gear into a photography studio, that's what makes it hilarious to me.
Wonder if the victim is the photographer's kid or something. Would explain the lack of facial hair.
That's a very good theory, the barber looks old enough for his client to be his son.
The kid doesn’t even need a shave!
This reminds me of when I went to private school and the guys couldn’t even have stubble without a teacher telling them they had to shave their faces again
I love mount pleasant! thanks for sharing
Do you know the source? To me, this looks a LOT like a memento mori photo. The backdrop, the eyes of the guy in the chair.
I initially thought the same thing! After some research though I found that the man in the chair is named Parley Fullmer, and he died in 1931.
The photographer’s name is George Edward Anderson and he had a photography tent with this backdrop that he traveled around Utah with.
There's no way someone has this little taste. This is more likely an occupational photo, showing off someone's profession. The only thing I know for sure is that everyone in this photo was alive when it was taken. It does kinda irk me when people think every Victorian era photograph is a memento mori photo, as if you're unsure it's one, 99.999% of the time, it's not. I mean no offense to you though.
Doth he have the golden helmet of mambrino?
The barber looks incredibly nervous that he's been documented here
Charles Darwin was a barber ?
Is that guy's torso wrapped so he can't use his arms, or is his arm supposed to be gone there? Just a bad pic making it look like he's missing an alarm?
You sure he doesn't push a snow shovel in Home Alone ?
