Bob the Barber – Baton Rouge, Louisiana

If you are from Baton Rouge, you probably remember Bob the Barber. He was at the corner of West McKinley and Nicholson Drive, about a half mile from Louisiana State University (LSU).

He always had a joke to tell you, and would say, “It’s right on the tip of my tongue”, and wink at you with his mischievous, sparkling Irish eyes.

I bet he cut every coaches hair at LSU for years and years. When I was taking these pictures, Skip came in for a haircut.  So did an elderly father, with his son and a man that had just joined the service.

Bob passed away a few years ago. He is missed and I think he would love knowing that a story about him and his barbershop are on the internet. He would get a kick out of it.
