    One memory that remains vivid is watching the barber remove the steaming white towel from where he was boiling it and placing it on this guy's freshly shaven face and how the guy quivered in agony.

    The Hot Towel Shave

    "Applying a hot towel before the shave – You’ll start the shave with a moist hot towel fresh from the steaming appliance, applying it to your client’s face such that the nose is exposed to allow for unencumbered breathing. The hot water will open up the pores, soften the hair, and prepare the skin for shaving, and as a bonus, it’s also a relaxing element that will create an experience for your client".



    "Applying a hot towel after the shave – After you’ve cleaned up the cut hair, you’ll apply another hot towel. Some barbers recommend following this up with a cold towel, which will close up the pores and leave the skin looking fresh and tight".

    I guess they really "cleaned up" on Saturdays!

    The photographer also speculated that they didn't change the bath water often, so it was good to get in early.
