The below photo, which is the best match that popped into my head, is from the excellent blog, "Spitalfield's Life." The gentleman in the photo is Aaron Biber, London's oldest barber as of June 2012. He died a year and a half later in November 2013. If you've never read Spitalfield's Life, have a look. The Gentle Author has committed to writing every day for ten years about her neighborhood in London.
The pictures taped on the wall and the collection of items on the counters are similar. The two men, world's apart, shared much in common: a poverty-stricken childhood, absence of a father and pride in their chosen professions.

And finally, I didn't want to miss the opportunity to post my favorite reflection photo . . . my sister on her wedding day.
(1)From Wikipedia: Pluto Water was a trademark for a strongly laxative natural water product which was very popular in the United States in the early 20th century. The water's high native content of mineral salts generally made it effective within one hour of ingestion, a fact the company emphasized in their promotional literature.
