Day 8

Barberz #1

January 7th, 2012

It is my belief that barbershops, more than any other type of business, tend to substitute z's for s's in their names. I'm actually stunned that this is the first such barbershop I've seen on this walk; I must have passed some without noticing.

    Yep. Agreed. They are all over the place.

    Maybe the custom began as a way to save money on signage (one Z instead of ES in some cases), but it is now part of the industry vernacular.

    Back on day 6 you passed by one. It’s in the background of the meat shop sign you posted. And there may have been one more too.
