Gone: Cooper’s for Cutting. The seriously retro barbers on Baker Street, Brighton.

Not so far away from the Level and Open Market in Brighton is Baker Street. Not a patch on its London namesake, it did (for as long as I was a child living in Hanover in the 1980s) have a most mysterious barber shop.

I never went in. But old fashioned cuts were offered at original prices. You could get your barnet chopped for 120p. Do you remember it?

This lovely video recalls Cooper’s for Cutting. It’s wonderful this was recorded not so long we said farewell to such a key Brighton curio.
