Vintage street flair: BlackBear Barber Shop adds the perfect show stopper door propper

The BlackBear Barber Shop, 260 Main St., Gloucester, Mass., has a sharp greeter-  a carved wooden bear sculpture and calling card receiver/business card holder.

(It’s a good fit for Gloucester history. Pre 1900, carved statues advertising Main Street businesses provided a new customer base for some  shipbuilding figurehead carvers.)
