Tom’s Barber Shop, Blakely

Joan Herndon writes that Tom Riley and Keaton Tiner have operated this barber shop since 1963, at least, and that it is still open for business. Amazing. Dan Westbrook notes that before then it served as Charlie Dunning’s barber shop.

    Tom Riley is my Great-uncle on my Daddy’s side of the family. If you ever are driving through, You should stop in to see Uncle Tom and get a haircut. He is well respected, well liked, and a wonderful man who loves to tell stories. I remember getting my hair washed and cut a few times at the barber shop by my Great-aunt.
