Syd Carter, barber and tobacconist in his shop.

Caption

My dad Syd Carter had a barber and tobacconist shop on the corner of Wilsons Road and Gamblins Road in St Martins. He was popular with the teenagers of the day as he was always willing to try something different. The older customers still wanted the 'short back and sides' but the younger oneds wanted flat tops, mohawks, and DAs.

1960s, probably about 1965/6.
