    The post should have been painted with a helix of red and white in honor of the Mann family.

  2. young says:

    After cutting hair for 90 years the thanks you’ll get is getting peed on – a bittersweet honor indeed.

  3. Candice In Alabama says:

    Is that a lamp post (doesn’t look like a barber pole, to me)?

  4. Katina Mann says:

    That’s awesome! This is my grandfather and fathers memorial. Barber shop is now an ice cream parlor.

  5. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Nice to remember him/them but why put it so low on the pole? You’d have to stoop way down to see it and read it. I’d think they could have at least tried to put something at eye level so more people can see it and read it.

    • Katina Mann says:

      Not sure why the light pole project put the plaques so low. It really isn’t that hard to read, but John is right it’s on the disrespect.

  6. John L says:

    What a horrible memorial! “hey, let’s fondly remember the guy whose tiny plaque gets pissed and crapped on all day by whatever dogs roam this sad stretch of sidewalk”…no offense Katina, but I would petition for a relocation of this plaque.

  7. katzien in austin says:

    Sometimes, you just can’t explain why City Council does things a certain way, or who thought something was a good idea and voted for it. I too would want to relocate the plaque.
