The Barber Shop Time Forgot

I was fortunate to stumble into a little time capsule in Sydney’s Surry Hills the other day, Chebal’s Barber Shop. Inside I found an interior which had not changed for decades, bits and pieces had been added here and there, light fittings no longer worked, there was several types of flooring, photos took up most of the wall space, about as far removed from a modern stylists as you can get.

Chebal still has a loyal following of customers after 34 years in the same shop. However this year Chebal will be retiring and this little time capsule will disappear forever.
