Bennie Horton’s Barber Shop, Tennille

As I continue to edit many of my older posts on Vanishing Georgia, I keep finding surprises in my archive. This was a window shot of a barber shop in Tennille, one of my favorite towns to photograph once I learned I didn’t have to wait for the train all day. This was made in 2010 so I’m not sure the barber shop is still there but I’m sure it’s a well-remembered local landmark.

You sure can’t find them like that nowadays. L. Vick remembers: Mr. Bennie Horton cut my hair in that shop for years. It was a one-of-a-kind place that I never left without a smile on my face.

    Brian – I enjoy your older photo’s and the descriptions. The “old fashion ” barber shop reminds me of the few times my father let me go with him to get his haircut…Going with Daddy was fun for a little girl….
