On This Date in My Photo History: July 19, 2007

Dick & Sons barber shop, a north shore landmark, will be closing after 72 years in business.  Dick Maniglia, an immigrant from Sicily, started the business in 1935. His sons Tony, Richie, Joey and Uncle Al Maniglia all worked here with dad. Dick, Al and Joey have since passed away, leaving only Tony and Richie. When asked about the closing, Richie would say only that it “was time”. Above caption from my 2007 photo essay entitled, “Last Shave”. Please see my photo slide show of the brothers and their last week in July 2007.
