"Not one man in a hundred.....ever puts a razor to his phiz.
The truth i, something looks wrong to see a white shirt or a shaven face........With the help of shears to keep the road open to our mouths and a little trimming to keep our faces a little shipshape, we are at the top of fashion. Barbers are about as useful here as would be a penny whistle under the falls of Niagara."

Henry Page....1849
