Syd Carter, barber and tobacconist shop : Picturing Canterbury

Syd Carter had a barber and tobacconist shop on the corner of Wilsons Road and Gamblins Road in St Martins. He was popular with the teenagers of the day as he was always willing to try something different. The older customers still wanted the ‘short back and sides’ but the younger ones wanted flat tops, mohawks, and DAs. 1960s, probably about 1965/6.        Kete Christchurch, PH13-420
